Mushroom Kofta Curry/ मशरुम कोफ्ता करी

For those who do not eat non-veg, the mushroom is considered a better option. Its taste and texture seem like meat, not only that the quantity of calories in mushroom is low but it is loaded with vitamin B, D, potassium, iron, and selenium. Mushroom is beneficial not only for the body but also for the brain. Mushroom is also considered beneficial for diabetic patients because it contains very little amount of starch.
Due to the abundance of antioxidants, it gives energy to the body, and vitamin D is which strengthens the bones of our body.
Besides the requirement of vitamins and minerals for our body, it is very important to control the amount of iron, especially for women. The deficiency of iron is the major cause of various diseases. If any dish which is rich in iron content is made and served every day in your kitchen, many diseases can be avoided.
