Mushroom in spicy cashew gravy is an exotic vegetarian dish with lip-smacking flavor. This tastes same as cashew chicken masala gravy and I recommend all non veggies to try this mushroom dish as it is the great substitution for a chicken dish.  Cashew / Kaju add rich and creamy texture to this dish. This tastes heavenly and just impress your family with this mushroom recipe. Sure, this makes your meal very delectable. This is a curry based mushroom dish which is a great combo of hot steamed rice or chappathi. Those who need a thick gravy can skip adding the water to the gravy. Hope you all love this restaurant style kaju mushroom curry and here is the recipe showing how to make spicy kaju mushroom curry/mushroom cashew curry. Do try and enjoy...
