Kadai or karahi is a thick, circular, and deep cooking pot that originated in the Indian subcontinent. Mainly used in Indian, Afghan, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, and Nepalese cuisines. Traditionally press-formed from mild steel sheet or made of wrought iron or non-stick, karahi looks like woks with steeper sides and 2 handles.
Tips to keep in mind while cleaning and cooking mushrooms:
Firstly, clean the mushrooms by rubbing the dirt off or rinsing them under running water. Do not soak them in water for long, as they tend to form soggy. Secondly, while cooking, mushroom releases water when it starts to get cooked. So do not add water for this recipe
