Mushroom Sandwich Recipe / Easy Masala Mushroom Sandwich Recipe / Stir Fried Mushroom Sandwich

Mushroom Sandwich Recipe

Mushroom Sandwich Recipe is an Instant Breakfast recipe if you have some breads in hand. Mushrooms are healthy alternative for meat/Eggs. As Purattasi(Tamil Month Name)started we don't eat eggs & meat this whole month. So Mushroom, Soya Chunks, Paneer & Tofu are our most preferred recipes for our breakfast & weekend Biryanis. Last weekend made this super quick Mushroom Masala for Sandwich and had for our breakfast along with whipped coffee. For the Mushroom Filling, I used Kitchen King Masala powder, it surely adds lovely flavor and taste to the simple mushroom dish. The below measurements will be able to make 4 (2 bread) sandwiches. I also used Maggi Hot Sauce as spread you can use ketchup, Mayo or any desired spread or even without spread just butter alone is enough for this Mushroom Sandwich. These mushroom Sandwich are perfect to serve as an after school tiffin for kids who like mushrooms. My boys loved this masala mushroom sandwich and said the masala tasted just like maggi masala noodles :) Now off to the recipe.
