Alaambe Aambat(Thunder Mushroom Ghashi)

GSBs just love Alaambe Aambat. This is a bland sweetish curry with or without added Yellow Cucumber. Adding Yellow Cucumber gives the curry added taste and flavour. Every GSB house hold that prepares alaambe in the season goes for this curry which is liked by all age groups. This is also a monsoon time delicacy and goes well with rice and rasam or daalithoi, congi, idlis and chapathis.
