Comforting and easy curry made with mushroom and corn. Serve with nan or rice of your choice.
A perfect make ahead recipe which is a savior for busy week night dinner.
This is a easy version of the very popular mushroom curry which we get in the Indian Restaurants.
What makes it fast and easy is – there is no grinding to make the garvy or the masala.
The combination of mushroom and corn is not a typical combination you would have tasted. But trust me they both go very well in the recipe. I also added red bell pepper in the curry, but it is totally optional.
