A guest post from a friend/well wisher whom I met via FB groups. I was amazed by her photography and culinary skills when she first shared her recipe images. She is Archana Karthick ,who had recently come up with a venture in newborn, baby and kids photography . Please have a look at her passionate works here at and turn your LO’s precious moments into Magical Memories with Archana. When I had asked her for a guest post , she readily accepted and said she would share it whenever she attempts cooking mushrooms. One fine day she instantly shared this recipe with me happily stating that it was her first try and it was loved by her kith and kin. Please do try for yourself and let me know how do you like the recipe.
