ABOUT Mushroom Chilli RECIPE

Mushroom Chilli is a classic chinese dish that is inspired with Indian ingredients, it makes a great appetizer for parties and is very easy to make as well. This is a much healthier dish as it is rich in Vitamin D. Mushrooms are enjoyed for their flavor and texture. They can impart their flavor to the food or take on the flavor of other ingredients as well.The presence of pepper in this Indo-Chinese dish gives a unique flavour which can make your tongue swirl with delight. The fried mushroom with batter coating gives a different taste to the mushroom in each bite. Chilli mushroom dry is a good starter recipe and good combo with fried rice, pulavs, chapati, etc. This mushroom dish tastes best when served hot.
