I love mushroom and pepper combo. Last time when I visited India I tasted the combo of mushroom and pepper. Loved it to my core. So I wanted try the recipe.. These days I take pic of new dish I come across and  I sent the pic to my friend who is from chettinad. If it is spicy and flavoured with pepper I always think it is from Chettinad. She had this recipe from her mum. Everyone in our family loved it.
