I signed up for Blog-hop Wednesdays a while back and was looking forward to cooking from the blog assigned to me.I was paired with Nisha and the moment I got to know I started browsing her blog.I finalised on this Mushroom thoran but,yes you guessed right,forgot to buy a packet of mushrooms for today.I didn't want to delay posting this,so went ahead with this simple curry.
Blog-hop Wednesdays is an event started by Radhika,wherein we are assigned a blog every alternate Wednesday and we are supposed to cook from that blog and blog about it.What a great way to get to know each others blogs and bring variety to the dining table!
