Mushroom masala

I dont buy mushrooms regularly as I am not sure how to use them. The first time I bought them, I used them in a soup. And the second time, it was a simple curry which tasted quite good. Though I was not getting used to the idea of having them so frequently. But when I made it this time, I just fell in love with the mushrooms. I felt it was something just like paneer which I am so fond of. Infact it blended so well with the spices and tasted great with capsicum and peas.
This recipe is inspired from the Mushroom makhani recipe by vaishali of Holy cow who has a lovely collection of vegan recipes. Thanks for the recipe vaishalli.
