Mushrooms are a naturally available source of Vitamin D. In addition, they are high in water content, making them a low-calorie food. The mineral Selenium found in mushrooms is great for bone health making them one of the superfoods. Mushrooms when combined with methi leaves elevate the nutritional level of the food. I tried this combo after coming through a recipe in a random recipe book.  I made some changes to the recipe to suit our taste buds and it turned out to be so good and flavorful. The mushrooms were so flavorful and it turned out to be a perfect side for both rice and rotis. Try this healthy and flavorful Methi Mushroom Masala and you will only make mushrooms this way hereafter.
