RECIPE NOTES

  1. I have used white button mushrooms for this recipe, but you can also brown button mushrooms for this recipe. You can swap cream with cashew cream.
  2. Never soak the mushrooms in the water, because they soak up the water and mushrooms won't turn nicely brown when cooked if they are full of water.
  3. If you want mushroom gravy thick and creamy, then replace water with coconut milk. This would add extra richness.
