A lovely Gujarati dish that is a must for curry fans. It originates from Baroda, Gujarat, India. I came across this delight at a family meal a few months ago and was blown away by the amazing taste and flavours. It is a mushroom pea and spinach curry served a as main course with roti or rice and will work equally well as a side dish to complement a meat dish. It is aromatic and gets all the amazing spicy flavours from a family grama masala spice blend. The textures of the peas and mushroom are complemented by a spinach sauce background.
