This recipe of Mushroom fry is a Goan recipe. Not to be confused with the Indo Chinese Chilli Mushroom. This is how my mom makes prawn chilli fry and I make the mushroom fry with green chillies – prawns substituted with mushrooms 🙂

In this recipe, not a lot of green chillies are used. Just 2-3 green chilies are used with onions. So there is a sweetness from the onions and hint of warmth from the green chillies and spices.

Mushroom fry is easy to prepare and serve. Make this dish when you are very tired or busy and you will thank me. It goes best with bread, dinner rolls or pav.

I usually serve mushroom fry with homemade brown bread or pav (Indian rolls) or white bread. This time served with black sesame masala bread.

It can also be served as a starter or can be had as a side dish. Sometimes I make it accompanied by some dal as a side dish. But most times as a main dish served with bread. You can also serve it with roti or naan.
