Crispy home made mushroom manchurian is ready to eat! Serve it with tomato ketchup and iced lemonade or wine. Your friends will just love it. This recipe is simple and easy when you have guests coming over - you can make it quickly and enjoy it while playing online bingo. We played bingo on a unique bingo site- GameVillage Bingo. Other than their regular bingo games this site also offers some casino games in which we all tried our luck. They also have a bingo radio in which you can listen to some great music 24/7.

So friends, if you still haven’t played online bingo then invite all your friends and enjoy it without stepping out of your homes and enjoy it with crispy, yummy mushrooms in your comfortable pajamas - and don’t forget to share your experiences with me!

  1. It looks delicious :-) Now I'm hungry, ugh.

  2. I have a question that I really hope you'll answer: how long have you been using topical steroids? Also, glad you've been finally reaping the results of months of hell! I'm going through it myself.

    1. Hi fellow warrior! I always have a hard time trying to figure how long I have been actually battling TSW because I have been traveling a lot recently and every time I was away from home, my skin drastically improved! I am in California right now, and I'm sure the dry weather (versus the harsh humid summer heat at home in Montreal) must be good for my skin. Last time I went back home, I had a flare, but it must have been some leftovers eczema too... I thought I was 100% healed after maybe a year though, although I will be examining my skin minutiously when I go home, which will be soon. Best luck to you x

  3. Strange, my comment disappeared... Anyway, nice dish, looks very appetizing!

  4. I just tried this recipe last night and loved it! I love asian cuisine but get so intimidated to cook it myself. measurabledifference.com


    1. I'm so glad that you loved it! Can't wait to try it myself!
