I decided to give some gap, at least 3 days for new posting. But my friend Jeyashri asked me to post any mushroom dishes as she is planning to arrange a get-to-gather at her place. So I m posting this stuff especially for her sake.

My daughter and my son both luv mushrooms a lot. The plate will be emptied in mts.

The basic recipe I learnt it from my sis-in-law vidhyaselvam. One fine day she brought me this and we luved it very much.

Then I started preparing and now I made some variations in this pulao. It also came out very well and hope u all too will luv this.


Mushrooms - 1 pack
tomatoes - 2
Green chilli 2
Turmeric powder pinch
Chilli powder ½ tsp
Onion - 1 medium
Basmati Rice - 2 cups
Ginger garlic paste
pulao masala, 2 tsp
Coriander powder
Mint Leaves,(optional)
Coriander leaves
Curd 1-2 tsp
Salt to taste


Red chilli - 1
Cloves - 4
Cinnamon small piece
Cardamom - 2


Wash the mushrooms in a Luke warm water and keep aside.
Add 2 tsp of oil to the preheated pan and add all the spices one by one.When jeera starts spluttering, add mint leaves, coriander leaves and fry them for 2 min.
Add chopped onions, tomato, ginger-garlic paste and green chilli. Saute for few mts.
Add pulao masala, coriander powder, salt(acc to yr spice levels) and a pinch of turmeric.
When onions turn golden brown, add mushrooms, and close with lid.Let the mushrooms cook in its own water (if necessary add little quantity of water). When mushrooms gets half cooked, add curd and stir it well. Then add 4 cups of water. When water starts boiling add 2 cups of rice and pressure cook it.Serve with any spiced curry or any raitha...
