Kadhai is a thick , circular and deep cooking pot , mainly used in India and Pakistan , for deep frying , preparing semi dry or dry curries and not to forgot sweets and deserts too. Even few dishes are named after the utensil and some of them are Kadhai Paneer , Chicken Kadhai etc .I have prepared Kadahi mushroom , an exotic dish prepared with spices and aromatics just like in Restaurants for last recipe under Main course. A few days back I found this recipe on Veg Recipes Of India and wanted to give it a try. As we all love mushroom in any form , so it was going to be a hit and as I was thinking it was gone in seconds . My daughter just loved it and wanted to have it in lunchbox too. So let's start the recipe .yum
