Delicious Mushroom Roast/ Fry :)

I got mushrooms the last time we went shopping and wanted to try out the gravy recipes as well as dry items. I checked online for various mushroom fry/roast recipes and was not happy with most of them and made up my own recipe. And it turned out to be really great!!!

Time taken for preparation: 20 min


1 cup mushrooms
1 onion
1 green chilly 
1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste
3 - 4 curry leaves
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 tomato
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon chilly powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper powder
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon oil
Coriander leaves for garnishing.

Prepping time:15 min


Step 1: Cut onion into small dices.
Step 2: Cut green chilly into small round shapes. Crush them using mortar and pestle or with the back of your blunt knife. 
Step 3: Cut 1 small tomato into small dices. 
Step 4: Clean mushrooms and cut them into small dices. 
Cleaning and Cutting Mushrooms:

  • First wash them nicely and slowly peel away the dirt layer. 
  • Cut into small dices. There is a black hair like area on the mushrooms. I usually strip them off from the big sized mushrooms. 
Step 5: Make sure you have the ginger garlic paste and the spices needed ready at your side.  

Now we can start cooking the mushroom roast. 

Method of preparing:

Step 1: Tempering

Heat oil in a non stick pan. When the oil becomes hot, add mustard seeds. 
When it crackles, add onions and saute them till they are brown. This takes around 7 - 10 minutes on medium heat.
Step 2: 

Add crushed green chillies and curry leaves and saute for a minute.

Step 3: 

Add ginger garlic paste and saute for another 2 minutes.

Step 4:

Add tomatoes and mushrooms and mix well. 

Step 5:

Once the tomatoes are mushy, lower the heat and add turmeric powder, chilly powder, pepper powder, garam masala and salt. Mix well. 

Step 6:

Close lid of the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Then add little water and cover and cook for 5 minutes. Taste and switch off if mushrooms are cooked. Otherwise cook for another 5 minutes. Add coriander leaves on the top for garnishing.
