Place them on the plate with a bowl of pani aside. At at the time of serving, stir the pani well before dipping the puries and eat immediately..

I love mushrooms in any forms. That might be simple or in rich flavours, I just dig into it that I would even eat it every day as accompaniment for my lunch. Coming back to today's recipe, the addition of crushed peppers with crunchy onions and  capsicum makes this dish very special. It goes well with roti, naan or mild pulaos too.


15 to 20 no Button mushrooms.

1 Onion.

Small Capsicum.

1 tsp Ginger.

2 tsp Garlic.

1 Green chilli.

1 tsp Turmeric pd.

1 tsp Jeera pd.

Pinch of Garam masala.

1 Sprig of curry leaves.

2 tsp Crushed peppers.

Salt to taste.

2 tbsp Oil.

Coriander leaves for garnish.(if needed)


Wash the mushrooms well and place it on a tissue or towel to remove the water content. Then chop them and keep it aside. Heat oil in a pan. Drop in ginger, garlic, green chilli and fry them for 2 min. After that add the diced onions and capsicum and curry leaves with a pinch of salt. Dont overcook them instead make sure these 2 veggie becomes crispier. Now add the turmeric, jeera pd, garam masala and crushed peppers. Sautee them. Add chopped mushrooms and mix well till all the masala gets nicly coated with the mushrooms .Cover the pan for 2 to 3 min and cook until the mushrooms becomes tender.
