Mushroom Stir Fry/ Poriyal/ Thoran

Mushroom becomes one of our favourite vegetable now a days. So started trying new dishes using mushrooms. In our hometown my mom used to make Poriyal/ Thoran out of all the vegetables. So tried poriyal out of mushroom also. We liked it. So just sharing this recipe to my blog friends.

You will need:

  • 10 button mushrooms
  • 1 onion
  • 4 green chillies
  • 1 tsp garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp cumin powder (Roast the cumin seeds and grind it to a powder form and add to all the curries. This will give very good taste to all the dishes.)
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • salt for taste
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • few curry leaves

Step 1:

Chop the mushrooms and onions finely.

Step 2:

Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds and cumin seeds and allow it to splutter. Then add the chopped onions along with green chillies and garlic. Saute for 2 mins in medium flame. Now add the chopped mushrooms, coriander powder, cumin powder, salt and saute it 5 more mins. You can even close the pan with a lid. When the mushroom is fully cooked add grated coconut and saute it for 1 more min.

Enjoy with rasam rice or with roti, chapathi.
