Gud gud Alambe tawa masala(Thunder Mushroom tawa masala)

Hello dear readers ! Today I will share an interesting recipe prepared with local mushrooms. ‘Gud gud Alambe’ means thunder mushrooms which is seasonal and found only during Monsoon season. It pops out only during first few thunders in hilly regions especially in Karkal. Back then I used to prepare Alambe pulav often when button mushrooms were not available. Usually we prepare Bhuthi or , ambat or song but this time tried a new recipe . It came out fantastic. Same recipe may be prepared with other vegetable’s or egg.
