As a variation, you could also add baby corns. Adding baby corns makes the dish great and awesome. Without baby corns too this dish tastes great.

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.

  6. Add the black pepper powder, mixed herbs and salt. Mix these well with the mushrooms.
  7. When the mushrooms are well browned and have enough shrunk in size, it means they have got cooked. There should be no trace of moisture or water in the mushrooms. The mushrooms should be sauteed till they become golden from the edges or sides. Keep on stirring while sauteing them, for a uniform color.

  1. Hi Dassana,

    I refer to your site with whatever vegetables at hand I have and find something that I can with it with minimum fuss. I am a working woman and don’t have the time to gather many ingredients and rustle a meal.

    I eat mushrooms thrice a week, and I look for variations here on your site. I have tried your paneer rice and that’s a staple every fortnight at my home. I don’t like any thing schezuan and wondered if you would give alternatives to that? I am making fried rice (your recipe) and want to try veg balls in hot garlic sauce, but that’s a schezuan version 🙁

    I made this mushroom recipe and it could be done in such a short time. Thanks! It turned out lovely. My family had it with rotis.

    Thanks a lot. You are simply great for folks like with no-fuss steps clearly explained.


    • thank you much sulekha. i can understand as i also used to work outside before and one just want to keep things simple,quick and easy. for the veg balls in hot garlic sauce, just use the base of tomato sauce, red chili sauce or red chili paste and soy sauce. this is the easiest recipe with mushrooms which i also make and also have it with rotis or homemade bread. you can also try mushroom pulao and even this one is easy to make.

  2. i like mushroom so i am gonna try

  3. Oh wow. Tried this out once, a bit modified. We had guests and I had to think of something fast to cook. Guess what – the guests wanted more and more with each bite! Couldn’t keep up. 🙂 Tasty stuff! –
