The speediest mushroom bhaji you ever did see, fast food without the guilt. This was a fridge raid that turned into something pretty banging, I had some sad looking mushrooms lurking in the bottom of the fridge and 20 mins away from my desk (that working from home life), yes that's all the time you need! . Serve with yogurt and roti.
