Pepper Mushroom

Pepper Mushroom is a very easy to make recipe. H introduced me to this recipe and said this is how he used to make mushrooms in his bachelor days. This would be ready in minutes and is a wonderful accompaniment to the rice varieties we make.

Mushroom - 200 grams
Onions - 100 grams
Oil - 25 grams
Pepper - 10 grams
mustard - 2 grams
Jeera - 2 grams
Salt - to taste


  • Clean the mushrooms and chop them.
  • Finely chop the onions.
  • In a kadai, pour oil. Add the mustard.
  • Once mustard splutters add the jeera and stir for 10-15 seconds
  • Now add the chopped onions. Stir until the onions turn translucent.
  • Now add the chopped mushrooms and salt. Mix well.
  • Keep stirring. Mushrooms get cooked very fast. 
  • Once the mushrooms are cooked add the pepper and fry for another 3 minutes.

Pepper Mushroom is ready!!! Serve with coconut rice/puliyogare/lemon rice or curd rice.
