Chettinad Mushroom Curry | Indian Curry Recipes

Chettinad cuisine belongs to the Chettinad region of state of Tamilnadu in India. It is known for its aromatic dishes cooked with the freshest spices and ingredients. Mainly known for its spicy non-vegetarian dishes, it is also known for its vegetarian delicacies like variety of paniyarams and rice sweets. This recipe combines the spicy masala with mushroom to make a tasty side dish. Just substitute chicken for mushroom for a indulgent spicy chicken curry.
