Kadai Mushroom – Low oil

Mushroom Gravy5

About:
This curry is an exotic preparation of mushrooms, capsicum in onion and tomato paste with the blend of spices. This can be made using less oil.

Health benefits:
In the absence of sunlight or supplements, eating mushrooms is a good way to up your vitamin D levels, and the only vegetarian food source of vitamin D (Vitamin D deficiency is thought to be quite widespread in Britain). They are also a good source of B vitamins, which help provide energy by breaking down proteins, fats and carbohydrates, and play a key role in the nervous system.
