Chilly Mushroom..

Mushrooms are'nt the favourite of many.But I love them for their intense earthy flavour.They are succulent and can go well when tossed with crispy veggies..
Mushrooms are included very often in my cooking for their enormous nutritional benefits.They are fat free and protein-packed.Those who don't love them must try this chinese style 'Chilly Mushroom'

Chilly Mushroom...

Button mushrooms are washed thoroughly in runnning water and let it soak in water diluted with 1 teaspoon of lime juice for 5 mins ..(This makes sure that they are clean..)

You will need:
250 grams of Mushroom
1 large capsicum
1 medim onion
2 green chillies
1 teaspoon corn flour
2 teaspoon tomato ketchup
2 teaspoon soy sauce
2 cloves garlic
1 inch ginger
Slam the garlic with something u can easily get rid of the outer cover of it.Chop them finely.Finely chop the ginger(No,shortcut for this!)

Dice the mushrooms as shown in figure...

Dice the capsicum as shown..

Dice the onion as shown..

Chop the green chillies finely..

Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil and toss the capsicum and onion for just 1 min in high flame and transfer them to a bowl..

Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil and add the mushroom .Add 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce and saute for 1-2 mins in high flame.Dont allow the mushroom to cook for a long time or they get mushy(remember,all veggies must be crisp..Its chinese!)

I recommend using 'Ching's Manchurian sauce' for all chinese side dishes ..It reduces half of ur work. ..But if u dont have this handy,follow my way as shown below..

Heat 1 teaspoon of oil.Add chillies,ginger -garlic mince saute for a minute..

Add the tomato sauce,soy sauce .Dissolve the corn flour in 2-3 teaspoon of water and add to the sauce mixture.Let it bubble.You will get a glazingly,thick sauce.At this stage add the sauted vegetables and mix them well and serve.

This pairs well with Chinese fried rice or noodles..
