I have received many requests for mushroom recipes Indian style like mushroom masala, mushroom manchurian, chilli mushroom, mushroom biryani and of course andhra style mushroom dishes. I have decided to do a series on mushroom recipes for my dear readers and am starting off on a very simple yet extremely flavorful mushroom fry.
In North India, edible mushroom is popularly called kumbh and down South in Andhra its called puttagodugu. Mushrooms are much loved and prepared by home cooks due to its flavor, nutritional benefits and makes for a great substitute for meat.
I try different variations of masala spice mixes each time I make mushroom fry. I like to use spices sparingly so that they do not overpower the real flavor of mushrooms. Even the texture of the mushroom fry that I make each time differs, sometimes its completely dry saute or a semi wet consistency fry. Today’s recipe is one those meatless, vegan friendly mushroom fry Indian style that you must try if you are a fan of mushrooms. The sauteing of mushrooms in ghee, coconut milk, freshly crushed pepper corns and lemon juice add an aromatic dimension of flavor.
