  • 1 yellow bell pepper chopped into small cubes or squares (optional)
  • 2-3 green chilies chopped finely ( I used 2 fresh red chilies as they are quite spicy)

How to make the recipe?
  1. Wash the mushrooms, immerse them in some water with salt, clean and chop them. Keep all the ingredients handy.
  2. Take a non stick pan or pan add oil. Once oil is hot saute onion until cooked and light brown in color. Ensure you don't burn the onion or make them crisp.
