mushroom roast recipe

This is an easy and quick recipe that can be made with just mushrooms and a few Indian spice blends or masala. There is no chopping of any other veggie for this recipe, except the mushrooms.

White button mushrooms work very well in this recipe, but even portobello mushrooms would be good. The whole dish takes not more than 15 minutes to cook. The recipe is too good and makes for a spicy starter snack.

Mushroom roast can also be had with chapatis or bread. They can also be served as a side dish with an Indian main course meal. Another similar recipe is this -> Potato roast.
