Chilli Mushrooms

This is a very easy method of chilly mushroom making,takes only 10-15 minutes as the chinese cooking is very fast cooking and also as we are using mushrooms, the cooking will be done very soon. A very good recipe for bachelors.;) A very good starter for vegetarians and very tempting when well garnished and presented.So best for a party as it is a very low time consuming dish as well.

1. White Button Mushrooms- 10
2. Finely chopped Onion – 1/2
3. Grated Ginger – 1 tsp
4. Grated Garlic – 1 tsp
5. Finely chopped Green Chillies – 3
6. Capsicum thinly diced – 2 tbsp (optional)
7. Soy Sauce – 2 tbsp

10. Vegetable oil – 3 tsp

12. Celery,finely chopped-3 tbsp
13. Salt – to taste

Preparation Method:

2. When onion is half done add the soy and chilly sauces,celery and half the spring onion.
3. Add the washed and cleaned whole mushrooms and saute well.
4. Close and cook for 5 minutes, till mushrooms gets soft/cooked. Do not cook the mushrooms too much, it will become very soft and its crispiness and the original taste will be lost.
