Black Beans Mushroom Masala Rice

             I am not much fond of beans/legumes but my hubby likes a lot.  And also strictly order me to cook any beans/legumes at least thrice in a week. I don't like sundal much. So i often make curries/ kuzhambu/ cutlets along with vegs. This time for a change i tried this rice recipe. No planning, nothing instantly i made this with the left over rice. I used black beans and mushroom along with mild spices which all turned out to a healthy flavor packed masala rice. I served with Potato fry with Cajun spices and chips. Simple Raitha will also a good combo for this rice. You can also use basmati rice which gives even more taste and flavor. Now to the recipe..
