Mushrooms are not so popular as it is in northern Indian states. I used to stay in Delhi where it is so popular and many local stores also sell mushrooms. But in Kolkata, it is not so popular because most people eat nonvegetarian. Here fish is a common item in the everyday diet. People eat meat so regularly. So very few people eat mushroom and most of those people eat mushrooms occasionally. Though there are various types of edible mushrooms available across the country.
