We are not sure which language this is from, but we pulled this Dingri Matar gravy / masala curry recipe from one of the old cookbook collections.

This will go well with another Punjabi specialty – think Tandoori Rotis rounded off with a glass of thick Lassi or Buttermilk.

The mushrooms used here can be white mushrooms or button mushrooms (since they are more readily available). Just make sure to clean them thoroughly.
