Very popular with my grandchildren, this curry is best relished with steaming hot phulkas .Both mushrooms and green peas are a storehouse of nutrients like fibre, zinc, potassium, folic acid etc.

Making zero oil subzi is not as difficult as it may sound, as it does not totally prevent you from adding sinful ingredients like Cashewnuts, coconut, etc. but just requires you to use them moderately.

I found it ridiculously easy to prepare. And it tasted marvellous with phulkas. It had a creamy taste even though I had to exclude the yoghurt and used only milk. I am planning to add some paneer the next time I prepare this.
