Mushroom Chorchori

Mushroom Chorchori a combination of mushrooms and potatoes cooked in Bengali spices.I have adapted the recipe from Dolphia’s Story of Cooks.Actually to be frank,I followed the recipe to the ‘T’ and believe me it was so delicious that my mushroom lover family went crazy for it.Do check out her space where she has posted four different kinds of Chorchoris and they all look so heavenly needless to say about the gorgeous pictures.

This dish I made during our April Month’s Journey Through Cuisines for the last day and this chorchori was one of the dishes from the Thali. The combination of potatoes and mushrooms was unusual for me but to my surprise it came out so perfect and delicious.The Bengali spices made the dish so aromatic and flavorful that it has been repeated quite a few times in my kitchen.
