Mushroom butter masala

Mushroom butter masala is much like paneer butter masala- rich, creamy and spicy- but yummier. The smooth gravy layers up on the soft and fleshy butter mushrooms to make a chewy yet delicious side dish. You can pair it up with both roti and rice. The gravy is somewhat similar to that of paneer butter masala and butter chicken. But the mushrooms and cashew paste give it a unique flavor and fragrance.
