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.
