I love experimenting with mushrooms as they are one of  my all time  favourites. Here i tried frying them with  two types of capsicum and it looked colorful and tasty.


  1. Button mushrooms – 1pk
  2. Onion – 1(large)
  3. Capsicum(red) – 1
  4. Capsicum(yellow) – 1
  5. Green peas – 1/2cup
  6. Tomato – 1
  7. Coriander-cumin powder  – tsp
  8. Ginger garlic paste – 1tsp
  9. Chilli powder – 1tsp
  10. Mustard seeds – 1/2tsp
  11. Chopped coriander leaves – 2tsp
  12. Salt to taste
  13. Oil -3tsp


  1. Wash and boil the mushrooms in pressure cooker for 3 whistles or in a cooking pot of water till soft by adding little salt.
  2. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds,ginger garlic paste,chopped onion,capsicum,tomato,peas,salt and saute till they are cooked.
  3. Now add the cooked mushrooms ,stir in coriander-cumin powder and chilli powder and mix well  and cook for another 5min.
  4. Remove from stove and garnish with coriander leaves.
  5. This fry goes well with chapathis or any indian bread.
