Mushroom capsicum masala

I adapted this recipe from a food group where the original recipe was with paneer.I made slight changes as per my taste.This dish goes well with jeera rice,Methi thepla or dosa.Capsicum and onions is added at the end of the recipe in order to retain its crunchiness.My kids love dishes prepared with mushroom,so I pick a packet of mushroom whenever I find fresh ones in the market.You may prepare this dish with paneer too.
