Chilly Mushroom Gravy

Anyone who likes mushrooms will love mushroom gravies. I am crazy about mushroom fried rice, noodles, manchurian and gravies. Recently I prepared chilly mushroom gravy with an Indian twist. Its perfect for naan, chapathi and fried rice.  You can make it watery or thick, spicy or sweet and tangy by changing the ingredients. When it is prepared at home you can eat it healthy, that way you can make sure that the mushrooms are fresh and of good quality.
