MUSHROOM PEPPER FRY



This is a one of our favorite side dishes, very simple and easy to make, and can be prepared in no time.  This goes well with chapathis, dosas, and is a good side dish for rice dishes with sambar, dhal, rasam, and curd.

Ingredients:
1. Button mushrooms, cleaned, trimmed, and sliced or diced (2 cups).
2. Onions, 2 large, diced finely.
3. Ginger-garlic paste, 1 tablespoon.
4. Curry leaves, a sprig.
5. Chili powder, 1 teaspoon.
6. Coriander powder, 1 tablespoon.
7. Turmeric powder, a pinch.
8. Pepper powder, 1 teaspoon.
9. Fennel seeds, 1/2 teaspoon.
10. Salt as per taste.
11. Cilantro for garnishing.

Preparation:
Heat a pan with a tablespoon of oil. Once the oil is hot enough, add the fennel seeds and fry them for a few seconds. Now add the onions and curry leaves and sauté for a few minutes until the onions are translucent. Add the ginger-garlic paste and fry for one more minute. Now add the chili powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, and salt and keep sautéing for  a few more minutes until the spices lose their raw smell.  Now add the mushrooms, mix everything well, and cook closed for a 10 minutes under low flame until the mushrooms and cooked and the dish reaches the desired consistency. Add the pepper powder now, mix well, garnish with cilantro, and serve hot.
