Recipe for Mushroom Rice

I had mushrooms left in hand after making Kadhai Mushroom Masala Curry. I thought to make some rice dish combining them with rice. As I have already told in the post of recipe for Kadhai Mushroom Masala Curry, mushrooms are very nutritious; rich source of potassium and other trace elements along with good supplier of vitamin D. Thus, it is much needed ingredient of our everyday meal. It is deliciously soft in taste and when it is cooked with spices and rice, its flavor is exceptionally scrumptious. This dish is a bit spicy with more of the tang of Tomatoes, delicious flavor of softly cooked mushrooms blended well with flavorsome rice, beautiful yellow texture of rice garnished green with cilantro and aroma of rice is extraordinarily tempting. Hmmm, let’s go making this dish coz I can’t wait cooking and tasting this yummy dish.
