Mushroom Thoran

Regular visitors of my blog would have already guessed that I love mushrooms. Mushrooms can be cooked in a variety of  ways and that's why I like to include them in our menu at least once a week.This recipe is a simply stir fry of mushrooms with a little coconut. This goes well with rice or roti.


Closed cup or button mushrooms - 250 gms
Jeera/Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Onion - 1, chopped
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Red chilly flakes - 1 tsp
Shredded coconut - 2 tbsp
Curry leaves - a sprig


1. Wash and clean the mushrooms and finely slice them.
2. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan and add jeera followed by onions and salt. When onion starts turning brown, add ginger garlic paste and saute. 
3. Add turmeric powder and red chilly flakes and saute for few seconds.
4. Add mushroom and combine well. Mushroom will release water and cook. When the water starts drying up, add the coconut and curry leaves and saute for few more minutes till the thoran becomes dry.
