Mushroom Chops Recipe / Kalan Chops (Chettinadu Style) is a aromatic, protein rich and tasty curry made with mushrooms and flavored with lots of Indian spices. Here I used baby bella mushroom, you can use any variety of mushroom to make this chops. If you are a non-vegetarian, you can follow the same recipe instead of mushroom, you can add pork or prawn or mutton or egg. Kalan chops goes very well with roti or poori or sambar rice or rasam rice or curd rice.
