Mushrooms are my favourite and I always have a pack or two in my fridge. Cooking with mushrooms is very quick and easy and it can be used in a variety of ways. Mushroom Pepper fry is spicy and yummy and tasted very different from the other mushroom dishes I make.This recipe is from my blog hop pal Priya Sreeram of Bon Appetit. View her original recipe here. She has lot of yummy recipes in her site, do check it out... Thanks Priya, for this wonderful recipe.Serves best with roti, naan, pulao, fried rice etc...
Button or Closed cup mushrooms - 150 gms, diced
Capsicum/Bell Pepper - 1, diced (I used 1/2 each of yellow and red to make the dish colourful)
Onion - 1 large, diced
Green chillies - 2, slit
Garlic - 2 to 3 cloves, chopped
Tomato - 1, chopped
Black Pepper powder - 2 tsp (adjust as per the spice level)
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp
Fennel seeds - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - a few
Coriander leaves chopped - to garnish
1. Heat oil in a pan and add the fennel seeds. When they sizzle, add garlic, green chillies and curry leaves and sauté till you get the aroma. Now add the pepper powder and sauté for few seconds.
2. Add onions,capsicum and salt and sauté for few minutes. The aroma while they get fried is awesome, but I choked a little :-). Add the tomato and when it becomes soft, add turmeric, cumin and coriander powders and combine well.
3. Add mushrooms and keep stir frying while it cooks. Mushroom releases water and if you want a little more gravy, you can add some water. Do a taste check and adjust the spiciness. Garnish with coriander leaves.
