My kids are a big fan of mushroom curries. Even my fussy eater love to relish on different curries made with mushroom as main ingredient . But as I never loved to repeat same typed recipes every time that's why keep on changing the base curries . This time thought to try mughalai curry recipe but with some healthy twist as my kid don't like any dry fruits. So I use to substitute unhealthy or fatty ingredients with healthy dryfruits to give my dish richness as well as healthy touch. This was my first trial to mughalai recipe but it turned out perfectly delicious and lip smacking.
Stepwise recipe is given below, do try and don't forget to share your experience with me.

** If you don't want to use store bought tomato paste then can use two tomatoes while making puree and skip tomato paste in your recipe. I added to give my curry a good colour as my tomato was not bright red.
* You can also use cashews instead of almonds if don't like almonds . As I added to make my curry more healthy for my kids.
