Today I am sharing the recipe of Mushroom Roast or Mushroom Fry. I saw this recipe in a magazine. But I felt the recipe was a bit confusing. So I did some changes and made it in my own way..And the final result was drool-worthy. Mushroom fry / Mushroom Roast can be a perfect substitute for those who love Beef Roast / Beef Ularthiyathu.
Mushrooms ~ 3 cups ( Medium size pieces )
Dry red chillies ~ 3-5 Nos
Coriander seeds ~ 2 tbsp
Spices ~ ( Cardamom ~ 2 Nos, Cinnamon Stick ~ 1 small piece, Cloves ~ 2 NosStar Anise ~ 1 No )
Onions ~ 1 No
Green chillies ~ 1-2 Nos
Chopped Garlic ~ 1 tbsp
Chopped Ginger ~ 1 tbsp
Tomato ~ 1 No
Turmeric powder ~ 1/4 tsp
Curd ~ 1/2 cup
- Heat 1/2 tsp oil in a pan and roast dry red chillies till it become dark in color. Then in the same pan roast coriander seeds in a low flame till it become brown in color. No need to add oil and allow it to cool. Then grind both roasted coriander seeds and roasted red chillies to a fine powder.
- Wash the mushroom pieces and drain it nicely.
- Then heat oil in a pan and add crushed spices and fry for 1 minute. Then add chopped onions, chopped green chillies, ginger and garlic and saute till onions become soft. Then add chopped tomato.And fry till tomatoes are nicely done.
- Then add turmeric powder along with mushroom pieces and salt. Then mix it nicely. Note: No need to add water, as mushrooms will cook in its own juice . Cook for about 5-10 minutes.Do stir in between.
- Then add curd along with powdered red chillies and powdered coriander seeds and mix it nicely. And allow it to cook for another 5-10 minutes or till almost all water is evaporated. Finally add chopped coriander leaves and remove from the flame.
Variations: You can even use 2 tbsp of coriander powder and 1 tbsp of chilly powder instead of roasting and grinding dry red chilies and coriander seeds.
Good to have with Chapathi / Rice.
