Tawa Mushroom Recipe / Tava Mushroom

Tawa Mushroom Recipe
Tawa Mushroom is very easy to make, the curry can be made in different ways but the main factor that differentiates this curry from others is that it is cooked entirely in tawa.Yes tawa you heard it right, so I can hear you asking so what difference does it make with the taste while cooking in tawa, I am going to leave you guessing...try this for yourself and am sure you will love it.

I used my iron tawa, you can use any dosa tawa too. I am trying to avoid nonstick pans for the past 6months and I am happy that I could survive without it even while making halwas and sweets.The posts that are coming hereafter with nonstick pans are the older drafted posts incase if anyone is wondering :P

My Notes:

  • The spice powders can be adjusted as per your liking.
  • It is a dry curry,if you want to make it more like gravy add more tomatoes.

  1. Looking so yummy and crunchy. Your photos speaks the texture very clearly. Good to know you are avoiding Non-stick vessels, yes their coating is causing lots of diseses and main route for different types of Cancer. Same for Tupperware plastic and other plastic vessels. Long time useage of this results in cancer, so many researches, food scientists, Ph.D in Nutrition students projects are showing the result. Even water bottle to kids school please use eversilver bottle - leakbroof so many available. Lunch boxes u are already in actin. Motivate others too not to use much plastic vessels.

  2. Great one
    But why not non stick ? Bec when I asked my husband to buy me one non stick pan he refuses to buy too
    But can we use ceramic pan
