This soup  is made in sri lankan style, here i have used “Oyster Mushroom”. I have added a curry flavor to suit our pallets. This soup is creamed with coconut milk & to finish i have used tender Mukunuwenna leaves. This is a very low cost dish/recipe and all ingredients are available in our markets. 
I always focus on giving all cookery lovers healthy recipes &  mukunwenna is used for kanji and mallum in our country.

Note

Do not over cook the mukunuwenna leaves. They should be seen in bright and green color and it give the fresh taste to your mouth. If you need a bit more spiciness in your soup you can add more chilli flavor as preferred.  you can use the chicken stock in  this soup, but never use  MSG in any of our recipes.
