Today lunch was fun. No,I dint go out but tried out a new recipe and must say it turned out yummy.. Thanks to my uncle for introducing me to this dish and to my aunt for giving me the recipe.. 2weeks back when my uncle(s) were here, delhi uncle said “if you get me that Maggie masala cubes, I can make Mushroom Stroganoff “,but for whatever reason I wasn’t able to get that and so it was time for them to leave and they went back.. Couple of days back when I had gone shopping, I made it a point to pick up 2packets of mushrooms (we get only Button mushrooms here) and also picked up 2cubes of Maggie veg masala cubes… I kept gramma informed last nite that today I plan on making Mushroom Stroganoff and she should go ahead and plan the rest of the lunch menu acc to their taste… Around 12 noon ,right after my shower , I called my uncle who passed the phone to my aunt thru whom I got the recipe and voila,I did make Mushroom Stroganoff, and must say it tasted absolutely YUMMMMY and is best eaten with steamed rice… Here is the recipe.. from what I remember… Mushroom Stroganoff
