I visited Dee & Chai's blog sometime back and read about Mushroom Saung. I thought this would be a great variation to Potato Saung for 2 reasons:
- We love mushrooms
- We don't use too many potatoes in our cooking
I decided to try the recipe out and just love it. My version is completely simplified as I always have readymade tamarind paste and I also bought some readymade red chilli paste.
400g Button Mushrooms, chopped
4 Onions, sliced
2 tbsp Tamarind Paste
2 tsp Red Chilli Paste
1 tbsp Oil
Salt to taste
Heat the oil in a kadhai. Add the onions and fry for 4-5 minutes. Add the tamarind and chilli pastes. After a couple of minutes, add the mushrooms and salt. Cover and cook for a few minutes. Serve with rotis or with rice and dal.
This was a super duper hit at home and I think I may have added a little more chilli paste than I should have. Even S felt he had smoke coming out his ears, so you can think of what happened to me. So, I have reduced the chilli in the recipe here. Of course, I wasn't complaining one bit.
I bought a whole host of baking books last evening and baked a batch of Banana Muffins this morning. I am so excited about this. I will start my X'mas cake baking only tomorrow. I am running late on just about everything, but let me be right on time to wish you all a merry X'mas.
