This Italian Garlic Mushroom recipe is for a request I got, to post some recipes which uses Olive oil ( Jaitoon ka tel in Hindi ).
My first recipe is an Italian one. I discovered this dish in “Il Fungo Magico” – an Italian restaurant in Koregaon Park – a suburb of Pune – Maharashtra, India. In the first go, we liked this dish. I tried making it similar to the restaurant one and it was a spot on taste exactly like the one we had. There after I have made this dish many times. When I have mushrooms at home and when i want to make quick lunch or dinner, I most of the times end up making this recipe.
Usually, I serve these garlic mushrooms with homemade breads/buns or with rotis (whole wheat indian flat breads). This recipe can be doubled as well as tripled.
