Oyster Mushroom Korma

My comfort  food for a cloudy rainy season is some nice korma with hot rice oh yes with omelet ofcourse. In my last blog post I'd posted about auchan food market it was quite an experience shopping I'm a sort of person who is always curious to seek fresh produce in the grocery section I found fresh and wonderful oyster mushroom the korma turned out real good...I  also read that oyster mushrooms are good for health Oyster mushrooms are high in nutrients. According to a study published in "Food Chemistry," oyster mushrooms contain significant levels of zinc, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin C, folic acid, niacin, and vitamins B-1 and B-2. The study concluded that consuming oyster mushrooms as part of a healthy diet contributes to recommended nutritional requirements.

Oyster mushrooms contain ergothioneine, a unique antioxidant exclusively produced by fungi, according to a 2010 study led by Penn State food scientist Joy Dubost. The study found that oyster mushrooms have significant antioxidant properties that protect cells in the body. A 3 oz. serving of oyster mushrooms contains 13 mg of ergothioneine, and cooking the mushrooms does not reduce this level.
