For all mushroom lovers, and vegetarians this is another fantastic spicy Indo Chinese recipe Mushroom Manchurian. Here i have posted is a Gravy version of Manchurian. When I post the babycorn Manchurian many people asked me about how to prepare Manchurian Gravy. So I decided to post a recipe with gravy.

I love the mild sweetness and juiciness of the fried mushroom in the gravy while eating. The taste explodes from the fried mushroom while eating. That is a wonderful experience in this mushroom munchurian.
