Mushroom Capsicum Masala

Recently, Mushroom has become my daughter's favorite. Thank God for that. Mushroom is one of healthiest vegetable available. It has all the possible goodness from anti-oxidants till anti-cancer properties. I have tried Paneer-Mushroom masala before and now I have tried Mushroom and capsicum combo.
It's very easy-to-make and can be made within 30 minutes and perfect side dish with roti or rice or Pulao.
