Chili Mushroom

Chili Mushroom is an Indo-Chinese snack that can be made quickly, and it is a favorite kids recipe. This dish can be made dry or watery, and both tastes great. You can either eat it as a side dish or use as a stuffing for your rolls.

Here is the simple method I follow to prepare this mouthwatering dish.

Ingredients (serves 2)
  • Chopped mushroom - 400 gm
  • Chopped garlic - 1 teaspoon
  • Chili powder - 1 teaspoon
  • Sunflower oil - 4 tablespoon
  • Onion - 1 (chopped)
  • Dry Red chilies
  • Curry leaves - a handful
  • Salt - to taste

  • In a pan, heat 1 tablespoon sunflower oil and add the chopped mushroom.
  • Cook for 10 mins and then drain the excess water using a strainer. (Mushrooms contain 70% of water, and when cooked, they become fleshy, and the water gets separated.

  • In a separate pan, heat 3 tablespoons sunflower oil, add chopped garlic, onions, curry leaves, and dry red chilies and saute until onions turn translucent/ golden brown.
  • Add the fleshy mushrooms, chili powder, salt and stir well.

Cook the mushrooms till the moisture has evaporated.
Transfer the dish to a serving bowl and serve hot.
