Mushroom Rice Recipe (With Home Made Spices)

Mushroom Rice Recipe (With Home Made Spices) - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
There are many varieties when it comes to mushroom and rice combinations, such as Mushroom Biryani, Mushroom Fried Rice, Mushroom Curry, Mushroom Rice, etc.
Here, I tried to make Mushroom Rice without any ready-made masalas like Garam Masala, Curry Masala, Biryani Masala, or Fried Rice Masala, and without any artificial flavors or colors. It’s purely made with home spices, and coconut milk is added to this recipe.
Note: This recipe is not very spicy, so people who prefer mild or medium spice levels can go ahead and make this recipe. If you prefer a spicier dish, increase the chili powder level and add green chilies while grinding the spices.

Recipe Notes

Here I added 1 cup of rice and 1 cup of water, since I added 1 cup of coconut milk and tomato puree, the water would be sufficient, if you are adding more rice, then water should also be increased based on that.
