Mushroom Chilli Fry Recipe – One of my favorite recipe is Mushroom Chili Fry Recipe made in Goan way. I usually make the Indo Chinese style but the Goan mushroom chili fry taste great too. Also I have used portobello mushrooms which tastes better than button mushrooms also tastes even better with this recipe.
You could club mushroom chili fry with pao (bread), rice or tastes even good with roti. If you don’t have mushrooms then replace with parboiled potatoes, chicken or paneer.
Mushroom Chili Fry Recipe is less spicy as less chilies are used. So use chilies as per your preference. Also if the mushroom chili fry stays back which I don’t think would happen. You could use them as stuffing in sandwiches, burgers, wraps or I would even use them in my omelettes with cheese.
I have adapted and slightly modified the recipe from Dassana’s site vegrecipesofindia. Dassana has wonderful recipes on her site and I have tried a few which were very good.
