Yummy Spicy Chilli Mushroom

Yummy Spicy Chilli Mushroom 

Yummy Spicy Chilli Mushroom

Do you love mushrooms? Me and my family love it a lot for its fabulous taste. But there's more to mushrooms than its taste, they are fat free, rich in proteins, fiber and vitamins. I also had not had Chinese cuisine for a long time. Some people are allergic to this specific vegetable/fungi, so you can also use paneer/cottage cheese or potatoes instead of the mushrooms. Here's my favorite mushroom dish which is slightly on the spicy side. Hope you like it! (And don't forget to comment or subscribe! Njoy!!)

You can also try: Microwaved Chilli Chicken


  • Button mushrooms- 1 packet (200-250 gms)
  • Capsicum/Green bell pepper-1 (Large)
  • Onion or Spring onion/Scallion whites - 4tbsp (thinly sliced)
  • Ginger - 1 tbsp
  • Garlic - 1 tbsp
  • Green Chilli - 3/4 (finely chopped or slit)
  • Corn flour - 1 tbsp dissolved in 3 tbsp water
  • Soysauce - 1/2 tbsp
  • Vinegar - 1/2 tbsp
  • Vegetable stock - 1cup
  • Red chilli powder - 2tsp
  • Black pepper -1/2 tsp (freshly crushed)
  • Oil - 2 tbsp
  • Salt and sugar to taste
  • Spring onions/ Scallion greens - few(for garnishing)


1. Rinse the mushrooms in water and chop them.
2. Heat oil in a kadai/wok and add the onions/ spring onion whites and stir fry them on medium heat till they turn transparent.
3. To the onions add ginger, garlic and the green chillies and fry them for a minute or so.Now add the capsicum and stir fry for a couple of minutes.
4. Next add the chopped mushrooms and stir fry them on medium heat till they start leaving water and turn little brownish. The mushrooms would shrink in size too.
5. The whole mixture should turn dry and the  mushrooms brown which would take 7/8 mnutes.
6. Add soya sauce, vinegar, salt, sugar, pepper. If you want a dry version, your Chilli Mushroom is ready.
7. For a gravied and saucy Chilli Mushroom, add water /vegetable stock to the mushroom and let the mixture heat up and simmer. 
8. Slowly add the cornflour mixture and keep on stirring. When the sauce turns thick remove from heat. Check the seasonings and add soysauce, salt, pepper sugar if required. Garnish with chopped spring onions.
9. Serve hot with veg fried rice/ plain rice or even goes well with plain rotis. Just N'joy!

My ingredients and step 2 & 3 .
Step 4, 5 & 6. I also added a bit of cornflour-water mixture to make it semi-gravy.

Loads of Love In The Disguise Of - Pan Fried Egg Pizza

Day before yesterday, on Friday was my daughter's Swimming Gala (Competition). She won two golds (medals). I am so proud of her. Everyone was cheering for her and I literally screamed my lungs out. She said," Mom, I deserve a grand prize!". I thought the same. But it was pretty late to go out.... So why not whip up something quick and delicious. After a bit of brainstorming , I thought of making pizza- but sadly did not have suitable toppings. Neither did I have any chicken nor did I have too much of vegetables. Suddenly I thought of making something "HATKE" (Different/ Unique)- Eggs, Cheese & Mushrooms- What a Combination!!             First I'd like to tell you that eggs are very rich in proteins and are as healthy as tasty. For breakfast- Eggs with toast and a banana, Snacks- Eggs Benedict & tea- all are such good food options but are incomplete without eggs.               Generally, we eat chicken/cheese/pepperoni/veg. pizza. But have you ever tasted egg pizza. No, right?! I have made it and want to share it with you.......             So, here it goes........           

  • 2 eggs
  • Onion- 20 gm.( chopped )
  • Capsicum- 20 gm.( chopped )
  • Mushroom-20 gm.( chopped into small pieces )
  • Pizza sauce- 2 tsp.
  • Cheese-30 gm.( grated )
  • Black pepper - According to taste
  • Vegetable oil - 3 tbsp.
  • A pinch of chilli flakes
  • A pinch of oregano (optional)
  • Salt - To taste

  • Heat oil in a pan. Crack the eggs and fry to make omelettes.
  • Now place the fried omelettes over the pizza base which is readily available in the market.
  • Now spread pizza sauce over the omelettes. Now sprinkle salt, black pepper, chilli flakes and oregano.
  • After this add the onion, capsicum and mushroom pieces.
  • Lastly, add the grated cheese. Cover the mouth of the pan and cook on low heat for 7-8 minutes. Ta-da!!- Egg pizza ready!
