Serve these spicy and flavourful mushrooms with basmati rice, salad, and curry or dal. 

Remember, always be 100% sure of what you’re harvesting. Always thoroughly cook wild mushrooms. If it’s your first time trying a particular mushroom, eat only that type and don’t eat much of it. Many non-toxic mushrooms don’t react well with certain people and can cause stomach upset.
