Print  Friendly and PDF
This recipe is from a fellow blogger who certainly takes charge of the kitchen, which is "purportedly" a woman's domain. Don't all women love a man who can cook?Ushnish, posts authentic Indian, honest-to-goodness, detailed recipes with witty tales that makes all his posts an interesting read.At the end of every post he has a nice shot of everyday flowers, wild flowers, never-before-seen flowers that just brings a smile on my face. Very thoughtful and original! He also happens to be the first person who tried my Twilight Drink and continuously praises me for posting it. He is at the moment temporarily unretired, stationed in Italy and missing his family and a kitchen. I have picked one of his simple,yet sensational Mushroom fry recipe to post as a way of cheering him up.Click here to see more of his mouthwatering recipes.

  • Button Mushroom - 20#s, medium-sized,  cleaned and thinly chopped
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Coarsely Cracked Pepper - 1/2 tsp
  • Olive Oil - 2 tbsp
  • Green Chilli/Serrano - 2, vertically slit (optional)
  • Salt
  • In a skillet, warm the olive oil and season it with cumin seeds.
  • Add the mushrooms and green chilli(if using) and saute gently but continuosly until the mushrooms are coated evenly with oil. 
  • Sprinkle the salt and pepper. Gently mix. 
  • Lid the skillet once the mushrooms start generating steam. Cook on a medium flame for 5-7 minutes.
  • Stir continuously till moisture is evaporated and mushrooms are dry.
  • Serve with baked fish, hot rice or as a stuffing for pita.
