Erode Mushroom Fry

Erode Mushroom Fry, I am not sure if someone have tried this recipe before. The idea behind this recipe is Erode Chicken curry, also called as Pallipalayam chicken. I just followed the same recipe using button mushrooms and it came out well too. So, thought of sharing the recipe here. This dish is really very easy to prepare with very few ingredients. The only time consuming job would be cleaning the mushroom, other than that this is one of the simple dish to make.

Erode Mushroom Fry

Preparation Time : 20 Minutes | Cooking Time : 15 Minutes | Serves : 3

Button Mushroom - 1 Packet
Shallots - 50 gm.
Dry Red Chilli - 5 No.
Curry Leaves - 2 Sprigs.
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp.
Chili Powder - 1/4 tsp.
Grated Coconut - 3 tbsp.
Oil - 1 tbsp.
Salt to taste

1. Keep all the ingredients ready to make Erode Mushroom Fry.
a. Clean and wash the mushrooms. Cut each mushroom to 4 pieces.
b. Peel, wash and slice the shallots.
c. Cut the dried red chillies to 1 inch piece(appox.)
2. Heat oil in a pan, add the curry leaves and dried red chillies. Saute for few seconds, make sure the chillies are not burnt.
3. Add in the shallots and saute till it turns translucent. Add salt and turmeric powder and mix well.
4. Add the red chilli powder and mix well. Saute the onion till the masala smell goes off.
5. Add the mushroom pieces and mix well. As you cook, the mushroom will start to ooze out some water. So no need to add water while cooking. Cook till the mushrooms are well cooked and the water dries up.
6. Add the grated coconut and mix well. Once the mushroom becomes dry, switch off the flame.

Erode Mushroom Fry is ready to serve. Serve as an accompaniment with any rice items or roti items.
