How to make Garlic Butter Mushrooms
1. Firstly, rinse or wipe 250 grams white button mushrooms and then chop them. Then, on low heat, add 2 tablespoons butter in a pan.
2. Keep the heat to low, so that the butter does not get burnt.
3. Add 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic.
4. Sauté till the raw aroma of garlic goes away. No need to brown the garlic.
5. Now, add the chopped button mushrooms.
6. Stir and sauté on low to medium heat.
7. Initially, the mushrooms will leave a lot of water.
8. Continue to sauté, till all the water evaporates. There should be no traces of water in the pan. You could continue to sauté until the mushrooms appear a light golden or golden at the edges.
9. Once all the water has evaporated, add 1 teaspoon mix dried herbs, ¾ to 1 teaspoon crushed black pepper and salt.
You can add any dried herb of your choice. I added 1 teaspoon dried oregano.
If using fresh herbs, then add about 2 teaspoons. You can use fresh herbs like coriander, basil, parsley or mint. If you have used salted butter, then add less salt.
8. Mix well and switch off the heat.
9. Serve Garlic Butter Mushroom as is or accompany with bread or Indian flatbreads.

If you use mushrooms that are at latest 2 weeks old the loose moisture and the flavours seem to intensify there will be very little if any water to evaporate
Hi Dassana. I follow your recipes religiously. I know you are a vegetarian.
But I just wanted to ask if I can substitute mushrooms with sliced boiled eggs in this recipe?
I have been looking for flavorful ways to have eggs. So I would gladly appreciate if you could suggest some of your other recipes where I could use boiled eggs/egg whites instead of Paneer or Mushroom. Thanks.
Thanks Jash. You can swap eggs with mushrooms. Feel free to add more spices like crushed black pepper, or red chilli powder or any preferred spices or herbs. You can try any of the recipes posted with mushrooms or paneer on the blog. Hope this helps and welcome.
