Nepali Style Mushroom Curry Recipe!!

Mushroom cooked in a Nepali way is my favorite! There are so many ways to make mushrooms but nothing can beat a delicious mushroom curry made in traditional Nepali style. Other versions of mushroom I like is the mushroom coconut curry (recipe here). Back home we used to get so many different kinds of mushrooms! Bhudke Mushrooms, Pudke Mushrooms you name it =)) Ah funny names! Anyways, here in the United States, I find that Oyster Mushrooms being the closest to what we get back home. Also, taste wise it is very similar to what my mother used to make. Without any further discussions, here I present you, the yummy Mushroom Curry made in Nepali Style :)
