mushroom pepper fry recipe with step by step photos – spicy and tasty recipe of mushroom and capsicum pepper fry.

mushroom pepper fry recipe

while touring last year in some parts of kerala, we used to have amazing food. this mushroom pepper fry was one of the dishes we had in the taj hotels.

in the restaurant menu, it was known as mushroom varuval. they used to give papers printed with daily activity list of the hotel along with one recipe everyday, when they would refresh the room, during the housekeeping task. initially i did not see the recipe in the papers, but when i saw them, i started collecting the papers.

i had made a similar recipe with potatoes and mushrooms a couple of times last year. while shifting again, the papers got misplaced and i have still not got them. so remembering the recipes in the handouts, i tried this mushroom pepper fry. the taste came pretty close to the one we used to have in the hotel. there are many dishes that we had in kerala that i want to prepare and add on blog. few more similar recipes with mushroom on the blog are:

  1. mushroom stir fry
  2. mushroom chilli fry
  3. chilli mushroom dry recipe.

black peppers are added to this dish along with some more spices. the pungency of black pepper is one of the highlight of this recipe. the aroma of fennel seeds are also felt. to give some color and crunch, i have added capsicum. though you can give it a skip.

mushroom pepper fry tastes best with chapatis or phulkas and even bread. you can also serve it as a side dish along side sambar-rice or a plain yellow dal and rice.

  1. Your recipes never failed to amaze me. Really superb.

    • thank you gayathri.

  2. Dear Dassana,
    Your blog inspires me to cook and I enjoy seeing such a variety of recipes from all over India. Especially, the recipe collections are so so good! Made the pepper mushroom fry but did not add coriander n garam masala powder as I was afraid that will take away the ‘different taste’ feel in the recipe. Added lemon instead…really happy with how it turned out.
    Thank you for posting!

    • Welcome Beant. Glad to know the variation you did to the recipe. Thanks for your positive feedback and appreciation.
