Story
Mushrooms are my ultimate favourite...there are so many ways one can use this versatile ingredient. But i prefer it best when stir fried with fresh herbs and served piping hot. I usually use fresh herbs in my cooking..but there are times when even I have to given in to dried herbs..at such times..i sue the thumb rule 3:1 for fresh: dried herbs..Use this as a guideline when you face a similar situation.
