Oyster Mushroom Korma

My comfort  food for a cloudy rainy season is some nice korma with hot rice oh yes with omelet of course. In my last blog post I'd posted about auchan food market it was quite an experience shopping I'm a sort of person who is always curious to seek fresh produce in the grocery section I found fresh and wonderful oyster mushroom the korma turned out real good...I  also read that oyster mushrooms are good for health Oyster mushrooms are high in nutrients. According to a study published in "Food Chemistry," oyster mushrooms contain significant levels of zinc, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin C, folic acid, niacin, and vitamins B-1 and B-2. The study concluded that consuming oyster mushrooms as part of a healthy diet contributes to recommended nutritional requirements.

  8. I've made this recipe twice in the last two months and both times it turned out to be delectable. I get oyster mushrooms regularly and love their texture. Till I saw your recipe I used to just toss them in with various Chinese dishes. However your recipe has shown me the beauty of cooking it the Indian way. This recipe is a winner and comes out best with good quality coconut milk. Goes best with steaming hot basmati rice.
