Chettinad Mushroom Recipe

Chettinad mushroom is a perfect accompaniment for roti. I have made this chettinad mushroom curry spicy and creamy as I don’t prefer a runny curry for roti. More thicker and creamy, it would taste good. Onion, garlic, and tomatoes with the spices gives that famous chettinad flavor. Chettinad cuisine is spicy and aromatic and is famous all over.

This is a must try chettinad curry. The recipe has come out really well. If you prefer a spicy curry, Then this is for you. Others will have to reduce the pepper in the ingredient.
