PEPPER MUSHROOM FRY

You are in a hurry and want to prepare something spicy?.... I give you... Pepper Mushroom fry. Mushroom contains 80-90% of water and are very low in calories(only 100cal/oz). Mushrooms are an excellent source of potassium, a mineral that helps lower elevated blood pressure and reduces the risk of stroke.


Ingredients :

Button Mushrooms : 500, Chopped
Crushed Black Pepper : 5tsp + 2tsp
Onion : 1, Chopped
Capsicum : 1, Chopped
Salt
Refined Oil



Method :

1. In a Sauce pan add 5tsp oil, Crushed pepper and salt at same time. Spread uniformly all over the pan.

2. When you get the aroma of roasted pepper (1-2min) add the chopped mushroom. Saute nicely. each mushroom should be covered with crushed pepper.

3. Close the pan with a tight lid and cook in low flame some time.When it is completely cooked (4-5min max) open the lid and let it dry . You can see oil on top of the mushroom.

4. Now transfer mushrooms to another pan and add chopped onions and capsicum. Add 1tsp oil, 1/2 tsp salt and 2tsp crushed pepper and saute nicely. When it becomes soft, add the cooked mushrooms and close the pan with lid.(2min)

5. After that, open the lid and mix all the ingredients well and let it become dry. Add salt if needed. Pepper mushroom is ready...Garnish with spring onion.
