Thinking of friends often triggers the memories of what I used to eat with them, over all the lunches we enjoyed at work I cannot imagine the number of topics we could squeeze into our lunch hour, it was quite some fun! And enjoyable it was, because practically everyone in our group was fond of cooking and discussing about it too.
Today, I didnt have many bright ideas for dinner, and then I remembered the quick mushroom recipe that P used to make all the time. Of course, this is a much dull’ed down version of it, if you ask her, she probably makes it more chatke-daar (spicy and tasty) than I do, but nevertheless, here is my version of it …
10 – 15 white button mushrooms, sliced
Half an onion, chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
Spices (1 tblsp cumin-corainder powder, 1 tsp red chilli powder, 1 pinch turmeric, 1 tsp of garam masala if you like it a bit more spicy)
1. In a pan, heat some oil and toss the onions. Let them cook for 2-3 minutes.
2. Add the spices and let them cook for 2 mins.
3. Add the tomatoes and cook until they are soft.
4. Add the sliced mushrooms and gently toss. Do not stir too vigorously, otherwise the mushrooms break and get all bruised.
5. Add salt according to taste.
6. You can garnish with coriander, or add some lemon to make it a little tangy.
Serve and enjoy with rotis!
