Mushroom - Potato Coconut milk Curry

I mostly try to stick on the same recipe procedure but makes changes with the veggies i am using. I recently was left with nothing but some potatoes , mushrooms and lady fingers. For the usual cook in me i would have made some Moru Curry / Buttermilk Curry + a Potato Fry or a Mushroom Fry to go with Rice for our lunch menu. But the unusual cook in me woke up  to try out the Kerala Potato Masala Curry adding in some Mushrooms. And i must say , i was happy with the result and was pretty glad that i tried it out.

We are huge Mushroom lovers, most of the times we have a big pack of White or Cremini Mushrooms stocked in my refrigerator. Its kind of easy to make something with mushrooms , for evening dinners , right ??
So , how did all of your weekend go ?? We had an absolute blast with our friends , and little girl was so excited to play with her friends.
