Achari Mushroom

July 26, 2015 Motions and Emotions 13 Comments

Achari Mushroom is flavourful dish of mushroom from Northern part of India. In this dish lot of whole spices are used which are normally used to prepare pickles. Hence the recipe gets the pickle taste and named as achari mushroom. Normally when we are heading towards weekend non vegetarians think about non-veg treats over the weekend or specially on Sunday. I would suggest don't look out for non-veg items this weekend and try this mushroom achari. I believe you won't regret and hopefully you would like to try this dish again and again.
