Mushroom with Green Peas/Mushroom Matar Masala

Mushrooms are rich in nutrients, mainly Vitamin D. Vegetables with Vitamin D are very rare and if you are a vegetarian then this is your perfect source for Vitamin D. Consuming it at least once in a week Β is good for health. Mushrooms go well with green peas and I prepared this classic dish of North India- Mushroom Matar Masala.
