Weight Loss: Here Is The Recipe for Mushroom Tikka:

Wash your button mushrooms and dry them in a bowl. No need to cut them, the mushroom is juicier when it is uncut. Only poke the mushroom, the holes will allow the spices to be absorbed by the mushroom. Then add curd, adrak-lahsun paste, salt, red chili powder, garam masala, tandoori/tikka masala and only one tablespoon of oil to the mushrooms. Mix the marinade well so that each mushroom is bathed in the spices. Let it marinate for at least thirty minutes, the longer you let it marinate the better. Then bake the mushroom for thirty minutes at one hundred and eighty degrees Celsius and your mushroom tikka is ready! Serve it piping hot with pudina chutney and surprise your friends with your amazing cooking skills.
