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.
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.
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.

Cooking and trying out new recipes is my passion. I come from a family with where type 2 diabetes is very common and we have lost many loved one due to complications of this disease. This blog is my humble attempt to create low-carb and healthy dishes and well as healthy lifestyle tips suitable for diabetics. This blog is to prove that healthy, primarily diabetic-friendly foods, can be tasty as well. Kuhapriyai @ Gita
