Halloween is over now, Thanksgiving is almost here and Christmas is right around the corner. The nature has started throwing a range of colors on the trees. Shades of green, yellow, orange and red are all over the place. And before you have time to take in everything, leaves have started falling to the ground making the trees bare.
The competent trees in the neighborhood have already shed its leaves. Slowly, a whole bunch of them follow the leader. And within a very short time span, there is a whole lane of trees that are just sticks and branches now.
I am thankful for the ones that are still holding onto their leaves with their lives, making this beautiful display of red and orange and yellow. It makes you feel a little warm amidst the setting cold weather.
All I want to do is have a hot cup of tea, pair it with something spicy, throw a blanket on myself and read. This dish may not be perfect with a cup of tea, but it is great with hot rice or vegetable rice. Food…well, that’s how you get ready for winter at my place ;-).
Read on for the recipe.

I don’t eat mushrooms but I am sure mushroom lovers will appreciate it.
I’m the only one eating mushrooms in my house, so will make your version when my husband’s traveling next time :-)

Fall is such a lovely season, isn’t it? I love the bright yellows and reds this time of the year. Here, all the trees are well past their peak and are bare bark and stumps now.
Not a mushroom fan but the pictures are quite inviting.
