In case you didn't know, button mushrooms have numerous health benefits too!
Elsewhere in this blog, you will find some more recipes for Mushroom dishes, such as:-
Today's recipe is for a spicy and tangy dish from my Home State of Karnataka and is called, "Mushroom Pulimunchi". This comes from the Mangaluru area where Tulu speaking Bunts make dishes with tamarind and chillies called Pulimunchi.

We loved this dish which tasted great with hot steamed rice.
