  • 1 Cup Milk
  • 200 ml Heavy Cream
  • 1 Teaspoon Cornflour Optional
  • 3 Tablespoon Salted Butter

Instructions

  • To make the creamy & delicious mushroom sauce, heat 3 tbsp of butter in a pan and let it sizzle.
  • Then, add chopped garlic and onions.
  • Saute till the raw smell of garlic goes away and onions are translucent.

Notes

  • More you brown the mushroom gravy, darker will be the final colour.
  • At times, you are not able to get heavy cream. The fat content of cream is important to thicken the sauce.
  • If this is the case you can add a teaspoon of cornflour mixed with water to the sauce & thicken it.
  • You can adjust salt, black pepper and thyme to your liking.
  • In case thyme is unavailable, you can use oregano or mixed herbs for flavouring your homemade mushroom sauce recipe.
