This recipe is soooo good.I have not included mushroom and paneer because my mother wanted something simple and she thoroughly dislikes paneer. So I excluded these 2 ingredients and i was little afraid with the thought that it might not taste good because of this.After cooking,I was surprised because it was so delicious.Next time ,Im including those 2 missed out ingredients for a greater richness of taste in a desi style.
