Chilli Mushroom – A Quick & Easy Indo-Chinese Recipe with Video

Chilli Mushroom is a classic Indo-Chinese dish loved by all. In today’s busy world, where everyone is looking for quick, healthy and yummy food options, Chilli Mushroom certainly is a great hit.

It is served as a snack/starter as well as a main course dish when served with Fried rice or Hakka Noodles. If you have any picky eaters at home who make really weird faces on the sight of mushrooms, this recipe is going to make them lick their fingers, I bet!

My elder kid never agreed to taste any mushroom dishes. She even removes all mushrooms from a veggie-pizza till date. Somehow, the chunky flavors in Chilli Mushroom just impressed her taste buds and she now likes mushrooms.

Apart from being quick & yummy, this recipe offers a lot of health benefits. Health experts and nutritionists refer to mushrooms as nature’s nutritional supplement. That’s because mushrooms are loaded with the nutrients our bodies need to generate energy and repair cells — including digestive enzymes, a spectrum of B vitamins, protein, and vitamin D2.
