Dear Pranati
Great recipe and great reminder of old days. I will try soon. But I wish I could get some " Pala Chhatu ". I have eaten all varieties of Mushroom abroad, but tell you nothing to match the taste of Pala, tiny Bali and the NaDa chhatu of Athgarh..The other day my friend called me up from Athgarh to come soon to enjoy all the mushrooms...anyway .." Rahina sangsara bisama janjale....". Let me check if I have any ambula left or not. Then I will try with the button ones.
