Chilli Mushroom

Posted by Annita on March 27, 2007

Do you love mushrooms?
I do…I do love them for their fabulous taste and texture,and of course they look pretty too.But there’s more to mushrooms than its taste,mushrooms are fat free and they are rich in proteins,fiber and vitamins.

Here’s my favorite mushroom dish which is very much on the spicier side,this can be served along with roti, fried rice or noodles.

Chilli Mushroom

Ingredients :-

Button Mushrooms sliced- 200 gms
Onion chopped – 1/2
Grated Ginger – 1 tsp
Grated Garlic – 1 tsp
Green Chillies chopped – 4

    Hi Annita, Each and every time I visiy your blog I find some very new interesting recipes and they all look so Authentic !! I have also tried so many recipes from you like the Ari pathiri, Naan, Malabar parathas and mailnly Kappa vevichadu is the trademark. I made kappa for the first time after looking at your recipe and ate them up all by myself without leaving them for anyone. It was so yummy. Today I planned to make your bittergourd curry with yogurt.
    will come back for more.
