Mushroom tikka masala

I prepared this yummy mushroom tikka masala few days back as an accompaniment with Methi thepla.This time I myself enjoyed it to the core.The gravy tasted super tasty and was indeed finger licking. I had noted this recipe from a food group long back  much before blogging but unfortunately didn’t note the author.So I want to thank the concerned person for this yummy recipe.This recipe may be prepared with cottage cheese, babycorn or even with the egg.Most important is, the masala s should be fried well until the raw smell disappears,or else the gravy will taste raw.Best served with roti,naan or dosa.
