Mushroom Pleated Bread

mushroom pleated breadIt’s one of the best dishes for the mushroom lovers like me who can actually eat mushroom in any form. And when it is getting accompanied or rather stuffed in a freshly baked bread, it’s gonna be just Amazing!

I baked this bread when we were looking for something to be ‘different’ and ‘exclusive’ as a breakfast; however, it can also act as a very good evening snack. Have it with green pudhina dip or with tomato ketchup, its just the best!
