Green Peas and Mushroom Masala

Green Peas and Mushroom Masala
I was flipping thru a cooking maganize while shopping in the Spark Supermarket few days ago and came across this perfect side-dish for chapati. The addition of mushroom to green peas was something new to me and I just love mushroom very much. Actually I was just window shopping and have no idea of purchasing anything at all. After seeing the recipe I quickly grabbed some mushroom and green peas made my way back to the bus-stop forgetting about my window shopping. Hehehe!!!!
