  10. Notes

  11. Caramelized Onions: Cut onions in thin strips. Heat 1/2 tsp of oil in pan and add onions. Sprinkle a little salt over it to make it crispy. Roast it till dark brown in color. Transfer it to some bowl and keep aside.

  12. Mushrooms will release its juice which will make liquidize marinade a little. But add left-over thinner marinade along with mushrooms to make this "Kumbhi Pulao" more flavorful.
