Here is spicy recipe for hot mushroom green peas #MashupSalad
I am making mushrooms after long time, as no one in my home eats mushrooms much. It is for sure tough and really very time consuming to get the white of Mushroom. But is was all worth it. I don’t like to eat full mushrooms. Making and eating mushrooms after decades now.
Obviously this is not age old recipe you want to follow as it is, as a women cooking blogger once laughed on my suggestions to her – saying she don’t want to change a thing about the age old recipe, for my suggestions to her. I told her, I am saying to change a thing in her recipe but to have the alternate parallel dish too. As some can think, so why not their innovated recipes, if tasty, nutritious, healthy and nice. If you can’t, as she laughed me, then you would be same state as age old times. Lols!
Ingredients: 1 bowl of White of Mushroom, 1 bowl of green peas, one small onion, 4 spoon of oil, one fourth spoon of salt, one spoon of black pepper, 2 dry red chillies.
This is my personal step, of getting the white of Mushrooms. I do not like to eat the stem of this thing, I don’t like the lower part – fibers or furry parts – that joins the stem and the fruit. May be because I have been in a habit of separating the juicy sensitive fruit from stem and any parts exposed to air, before consuming it. I personally do not like to consume these exposed to atmosphere parts of sensitive juicy fruits and vegetables.
It costed me 1.5 dollars to get the raw mushrooms and getting just a small white of Mushroom. More cost is cost of time to peel the Mushrooms from all sides to get the white of Mushrooms. It was time consuming, but it was all worth it and I can spend more time to make it again.
Step 1. One bowl of the white part of Mushroom. I don’t like the stem and the brown-blackish growth just where stem meet mushroom, so I peel it all off. I shall call it the white of mushroom in my cookings. How to get the white of Mushroom steps are given below, after the recipe is over.
Step 2. Heat 4 spoon of vegetable oil, I used raw mustard oil. Heat till mild fumes comes, else smell of peculiar mustard oil remains. You can use any oil (pulses oil or vegetable oil, as per your suitability)
Step 3. Chop one onion and put in hot oil, fry for some seconds, till it’s mildly changed in color and textures.
Step 4. Put the clean white of Mushroom in the frying pan now.
Step 5. Mix it in pan.
Step 6. Add spices in pan now – one fourth spoon of salt, one spoon of black pepper, 2 dry red chillies, cut with scissors. Now mix and fry it for 1-2 minutes on very slow flame. Make sure, not to burn the mushrooms. And also make sure to keep mixing these.
Step 7. Wash one bowl of green peas. See the ratio for perfect blend of taste.
Step 8. Add these peas to the frying pan now.
Step 9. Put 2 bowl of water in frying pan now. And let it heat. This will cook the peas and mushrooms would taste even more wonderful.
Step 10. Heat it on full flame.
Step 11. Keep heating till all water dries up, no need to throw water, let it dry up with heat of gas stove flames.
Step 12. Now water is reduced to lesser quantity, taste the green peas, are they of your likings in softness. Or are they hard, if they seem hard to you, add some more water heat more. For me it was perfect green peas softness I wanted.
Step 13. When the water is much lesser, start using spatula to dry the lesser water, keep mixing and keep drying it now. On full flame, see how it dried. Why we don’t throw water here as it has all essential nutrients so why to throw, heat it dry. Water to be thrown when some kind of form, or dirt occurs while heating in open pans, hence I prefer heating in open pans, to see the process as well. To dispose any dirt in cooking if it occurs, at times in heating pulses, or so..
Step 14. This is ready to be served now, dry still juicy, hot, spicy.
Step 15. Serve
Steps to get the White Of Mushroom from raw Mushrooms from market.
Step 1. Take 400 grams of Mushrooms. From market.
Step 2. Take it off in a plate.
Step 3. Put it in a big utensil, fill it with water. Mildly shake the water, do not rub.
Step 4.Just in 39 seconds, remove mushrooms to a clean utensil. See the dirt left in other utensil.
Step 5. Take one by one each mushroom. This is my personal step, I do not like to eat the stem of this thing, I don’t like the darker growth joining the stem and the fruit. May be because I have been in a habit of separating the juicy sensitive fruit from stem and any parts exposed to air, before consuming it. I personally do not like to consume these exposed to atmosphere parts of sensitive juicy fruits and vegetables.
Here this is what I got from the 400 grams of mushrooms, just the white part, by peeling off the top and removing the stem, avoiding the lower darker part, as it is exposed to stem.
More cost is cost of time to peel the Mushrooms from all sides to get the white of Mushrooms. It was time consuming, but for sure with it all. If I get mushrooms again, I won’t mind making it again even if it takes time.
