Mushroom Embassy

I got this recipe from nitha mehta's book but she had done it with chicken, but i wanted to do a vegetarian version of it so i did it with mushrooms, here i have used chestnut mushrooms, if you dont find it then you can use any other type as well...the gravy was just awesome, more than what i expected!!!!

1 big tomato finely chopped

1 tbsp coriander leaves finely chopped + for garnishing
