Is there any relation between Mushroom and Lightning? Yes, Ancient Egyptians considered mushrooms as the sons of god,sent to earth riding on bolts of thunder.
Hard to believe?!!But I remember , In my childhood days,When there is a lightning the previous night,We all go for mushroom picking early in the morning.Normally it popped up near the compound wall(border).,Neighbourhood kids also join with us. It was really fun for all of us, …All ended up with a spicy mushroom dry fry!!My mom is good at cooking..But she never go for any experiments in kitchen . Mushrooms can add a touch of class and the much-needed variety to everyday meals.
