Pepper Mushroom Fry


I adapted this recipe from a South Indian TV show. It’s very simple yet tasty. I love mushroom and this recipe is easy to cook and you don’t need a lot of ingredients. If you eat spicy food this is the perfect recipe for you. It goes well with fried rice or even with chapathi.


  • Mushroom : 1 cup
  • Olive oil : 5 tbsp
  • Cumin seeds : 2 tsp
  • Garlic : 7-8  (Finely chopped)
  • Onion : 1 1/2 cup ( finely chopped)
  • Whole Black pepper : 10-14 (Coarsely powdered)(according to your spice level)
  • Salt : according to your taste

Method of Preparation:

  1. Heat oil in a pan after that add cumin seeds fry them for a minute and chopped garlic . Fry them for 2 – 3 minutes.
  2. After that add the chopped onions sautee them till it becomes golden brown (make sure the onion become crispier).
  3. Now add the mushrooms and crushed  pepper powder ( 2 tbsp).
  4. Add the salt at the end to avoid mushroom becoming soggy.
  5. Fry them for 10 minutes or till it becomes  fully cooked and crispier.

    Thank you for providing this recipe. After I finished making this, I felt that the original recipe didn’t make a lot of food. If I were to cook this again, I would double it.
