Easiest Mushroom Masala

Easy to make, quick Indian Mushroom Curry, with succulent mushrooms
drenched in spicy Indian gravy.

From Ayurvedic Point of View:

Mushrooms have an earthy flavor like a dark, rich, loamy soil. That
earthiness is a symbol of the Potential of the mushrooms to hold you
grounded and calm your nervous system. They are called ‘Tamasic’ in
Ayurveda, implying that they make the consciousness sleepy.
Mushrooms are particularly absorbent minerals in the soil, along with a
rich nutritional profile, as their earthy flavor indicates. As well as
mushrooms consume minerals, they even accumulate any toxins
they’re grown in and have also been used to clean up toxins waste sites.
That’s why you should always consume organic mushrooms.
