Mushroom Fry Recipe - Easy Mushroom Roast

Mushroom Fry Recipe
This mushroom fry is my recent try.I experimented this recipe with prawns and it came out super good so slightly tweaked the recipe and tried it with mushrooms and we all loved it, this goes well with rice / rotis.This is a dry mushroom fry, it is sure better than deep fry don't underestimate the flavour is so good which blends well with mushrooms.

Mittu runs miles away when I say mushrooms, So I make mushrooms mostly in weekdays.The first time I tasted mushroom was at my friends house during christmas, we 3 of us were invited for christmas lunch, it was wide spread with so many varieties of food and mushroom masala was one of the items served. I instantly loved it and from there my relationship with mushroom started and it is still going strong though it slipped many times in between ;)

My Notes:

  • Check the detailed cleaning and cutting procedure of mushrooms here.
  • This is spicy fry so adjust spice powders if you want to reduce hotness.
  • This pairs well with phulka / white pulaos / or even with plain rice.
  • Mushrooms cook faster so dont overcook.No need to add water...Mushrooms will leave out water and that's enough for it to get cooked.
  • Don't add salt while marinating else it will leave out more water.
  • Don't add water while marinating just toss it thats enough.
