Now-a-days we started including mushrooms twice a month , as they say it is very good source of protein. Generally i make Mushroom Masala or Kadai Mushroom . So i wanted to try something different this time and made this mushroom pepper fry. For a change i made a dry subzi in chettinad style with freshly ground spices. The pepper fry was very nice and it tasted well with rasam rice.

  1. You can add fennel powder, coriander powder, cumin seed powder and pepper powder instead of grinding this .
  2. But using freshly ground spices will give a great aroma to the mushroom masala.
