Being a tambrahm, growing up eating vethakuzhambu and poricha kootu I used to think mushroom as some non-vegetarian stuff when I was a kid 🙂 Things changed after I got married. Shiva is very fond of mushrooms and whenever we go out for dinner he will definitely order something made out of it. Eventually I started liking them. However the stores nearby our place sell only ‘button’ mushrooms. I hope someday will get to try other varieties too.
