Here again is one of my favorite ways of cooking mushrooms.. Mushroom Sukka cooked in a dry coastal masala style. Mushrooms add that earthy Umami taste to any recipe. So this one is a great hit with everyone.
Try pairing this recipe with some yummy jowar or nachni bhakris/rotis, some yummy Solkadi, plantain curry and simple plain rice. Such an awesome meal. 🙂 Do try it out.
These days somehow it has happened that I have ended up calling so many groups of non-vegan friends and relatives for a meal over and have ended up cooking various Vegan Menus with different dishes. I love to see the satisfaction on their faces. Also it totally changes the way they see Vegan food options. One thing they all know by now is that when they come home they are assured of a delicious soulful home cooked Vegan food…
I believe that’s how we carry out our dharma, by being fully in the present moment and treating each interaction with every person in our daily life with full sincerity…either we have something to learn from them or they something from us. The way to the future ..and yes, we want to get there real fast!!.. but it is indeed by being fully in the present.. Also it is important to never be insecure of what anyone else is doing or not doing. It’s a total waste of time and energy. 🙂 We are all just walking each other home and doing exactly what we all need to do…
So try this out ..:) Call people over and feed them delicious wholesome Vegan food. 🙂 Nothing needs to be said or explained when there is great food on the plate. 🙂
So many more recipes to share with you all… 🙂
As always sending loads of love, light and happiness your way…
Hope all has been well at your end too. 🙂
