Mushroom Pepper Masala - It's Hot !!!

             This Wednesday is special again since its Blog Hop Wednesday,nothing but a wonderful event by Radhika . Its a great opportunity to meet more bloggers and the best thing of this event is to try out some recipe from the paired blogger. Its really more fun u know, getting more friends, learning some interesting and new things from their blog and above all trying their own recipe. It didn't stop with that alone, we should post that tried and tasted recipe on every BHW. Like that,so far we have successfully completed 3 months with one set of people and eagerly waiting for the new group list and schedule. Kudos to Radhika for all her effort and creativity...
             This week my pair was Priya Sreeram of Bon Appetite. Her blog title and description impressed me a lot..." Bon Appetite"  Cooked with Passion;Served with Love. Cool title isn't??
Wow...her blog is loaded with lots of yummy and healthy vegetarian recipes. Its really a very tough time for me to choose. And bookmarked some 6 recipes from that i tried Milagi Podi and Mushroom Pepper Fry. Usually for my idli milagai podi i wont add sesame seeds for the first time i tried with adding sesame seeds and loved it a lot.
           Coming to this Musroom Pepper Masala, its hot ...yep, really its Hot 'O Hot. My son Sanjay was not feeling well and caught with cold and cough. As this month (till this Monday) was Puratassi, we don't eat any non veg and egg dishes during Puratassi Month or else i would have made Pepper chicken fry. I made pepper rasam to sooth his throat and cough but he was not ready to eat the rasam... He likes Egg Pepper Fry but because of Puratassi my H didn't allow me to make it. So this Musroom Pepper Masala was a big remedy and helped a lot. Generally for any pepper dishes, i use to add freshly ground pepper at the end only but in this recipe she described to add it in the beginning itself. I followed the recipe as such and over all it was so so so so yummy and soothing....Thanks a lot dear sure this will be a keeper recipe and going to try chicken instead of mushroom :) Now to the Mushroom Pepper Masala...

  1. Mushroom     3/4 cup (chopped)
  2. Onion   1 large (diced or chopped)
