Mushroom Chilly/Chilly Mushrooms

When it comes to mushrooms the first thing that comes to my mind is Chinese or Indo- Chinese. Mushroom is our family favourite… I guess I have told or will keep telling it whenever there is a mushroom post ;)
Today I am posting a Indo chinese recipe – Mushroom Chilly/Chilly Mushroom

We Need
v  1 packet of white button mushrooms (it normally comes in 250gms pack)
v  1 large capsicum/green bell pepper, cut into square shapes ( I have used ½ green and half yellow)
v  2 tbsp chopped spring onion (white)
v  1 tbsp finely chopped spring onion(green part) for garnishing
v  ½  tbsp ginger finely chopped
v  1 tbsp garlic finely chopped
v  2-3 green chilies slit
v  2 tsp corn flour dissolved in 4 tsp water
v  ½ tbsp soya sauce
v  ½ tbsp vinegar
v  1 cup water( adjust or add more if needed)
v  ½ tsp black pepper powder
v  2 tbsp oil
v  salt to taste

v  sugar to taste(around 1/2tsp)

v  Wash the mushroom in water and chop them.
v  Heat oil in a deep bottom pan.
v  Add the spring onion white and stir them on medium heat till they become translucent.
v  Add in the ginger, garlic and green chilies and stir fry for atleast 2 minutes.
v  Add the mushrooms and stir fry on medium heat till the mushrooms leaves its water this will the whole mixture must dry up.
v  Add soya sauce, pepper powder, salt, sugar, vinegar and stir.
v  Add the capsicum and stir fry for a couple of minutes(You can add it in prior but the reason for adding it later is to keep it crunchy).
v  Add water to the mushrooms and allow it to boil.
v   Now add slowly cornflour paste to this mixture.
v  Keep on stirring and avoid lumps.

v  When the sauce is thick enough remove from heat( I have made it a little more thick by heating it for 2 more minutes)

Serve it hot with some fried rice or plain white rice. J
Till Later Then,
