Superquick Chilli Mushroom

I have not really experimented with mushrooms. Infact mushrooms were just confined to making mezhukkuperatti/ stir fry(a hot favourite in my family) and mushroom masala.

Recently in a cooking show a renowned chef was talking about mushrooms and the word ‘umami’ . I was hearing the word first time and was much surprised to know that mushrooms can deliver ajinimoto(glutamate) kinda taste(pleasant savoury taste to be precise) . And now I am looking forward to more umami inspired recipes.

Back to the chilli mushrooms, this recipe is superquick with less ingredients.This was my first trial but turned out to be a great success.
