Mushroom and Rajgira Canapes was actually an accidental recipe. I was trying out something with a base of Rajgira but the earthy flavour was too strong and that's when I made a quick dough and boom came this interesting recipe of Mushroom and Rajgira Canapes.
For my seven year old, it serves as a small pizza and he loved it to an extend that wanted to carry next day to school. While I added cheese over this, for my husband I completely skipped it but still it tasted nice. So, if you want to give it like a small pizza bite, adding cheese does the trick to otherwise healthy bite.
