Mushroom Jalfrezi


Jalfrezi recipe comes from Indian, Bangladesh continent. It is made with frying meat, fish, and vegetables in a few spices and yogurt. I have heard the name chicken Jalfrezi and have tried making at home as well. The idea of Jalfrezi is applied to Mushroom and I came up with this Mushroom jalfrezi. It is bit spicy but is balanced with yogurt and fresh cream in it. I made Mushroom Jalfrezi considering vegetarians.

My husband is hardcore nonvegetarian and very less interested in eating vegetables. I keep trying and experimenting on vegetables to match it to give the flavors as nonveg.
