MuMi’s tip and tricks :

  1. Using fresh cream is optional. You may skip this step.
  2. You can fry the mushrooms directly after washing instead of boiling it. In that case cut the mushrooms into very small pieces (1 button mushroom cut into 6 pieces).
  3. You can use whole garam masala instead of shahi garam masala powder.
  4. Try to use the 3 bell peppers in equal quantity.
