Mushroom Ularthiyathu / Spicy Sauteed Mushrooms


Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas, every where you go .... Isn't it? I  wish these days would never end. This season brings a lot of ineffable joy to my mind even though this is the busiest month for N. The red and the white and the green...the clothes and the plates and the gifts...oh christmas I want you to stay!.. No doubt ..its the most wonderful time of the year!!!

Know what , my Radio, my Mac and Ipod are all tuned to 106.7 fm and Holiday christmas classics all the time.Its like i could hear it which ever room i go to. I couldnt do a "thing" without the light warm comforting joyful christmas musics( too many oxymorons i guess , never mind)....But there is something which is yet to come to make the feeling perfect. The Snow!!! We are yet to be blessed with the pretty little snow flakes this season!! But as i type this, i can see a few flurries , telling its just a breath away..

Coming to todays post...as I have mentioned in my last one, I took an abstinence from meat and fish these days till christmas. What could better substitute meat than the mushroom? 
This is a simple stir fried mushroom which can be made in a jiffy . A good side dish with chapati and even rice , this is too good to make your cold days warm! Hot , spicy and simply awesome..


Recipe for Kerala Koon ularthiyathu / Spicy stir fried Mushroom

Ingredients:-
Mushroom - 250 gm or 9 oz
Onion thinly sliced - 2 medium
Garlic sliced - 2 cloves
Kashmiri Red chilli powder - 1 tbsp ( or regular hot chili powder - 1 tea spoon)
Garam masala - 1/4 tea spoon
Crushed pepper corns - 1/4 tea spoon
Salt to taste
Curry leaves
Mustard seeds
Oil

Method:-

Clean the mushrooms in hot water and slice it.
Heat oil in a non stick saute pan and add mustard seeds. 
When they pop up add sliced onions and fry for 7-8 minutes.
Add sliced garlicand curry leaves and fry till onion and garlic turns golden.
Add red chili powder and fry it for a minute or so.
Add sliced mushrooms and combine it well.
Saute the mushrooms for 7-8 minutes or till they are cooked.
Sprinkle garam masala and crushed pepper corns and saute for another 2-3 minutes.
Serve warm!!!

Notes:-
  • Use fresh mushrooms else it will be too watery when you cook it
  • Try to use a wide mouthed non stick saute pan , to let the cooking liquid evaporate, if any.
  • You can try the same recipe with 3 hard boiled eggs too.. 
  • Add some coconut cuts while sauteing onions for that extra kick 
Cheers
Sarah
