I get a lot of requests to post recipes that are quick to make and do not take long hours of cooking. I will be adding such recipes that can be made quickly, but without compromising on the health factor and using fresh ingredients.

This recipe of mushroom stir fry is one I make at times along with the Mushroom fry and Garlic butter mushroom. These three recipes are my savior recipes on days when I do not have the luxury of time to cook an elaborate meal. Usually I have wheat dough in the fridge, so after the mushrooms are cooked, I make phulkas and prepare a quick veggie salad.

There are various ways and methods through which a stir fry recipe can be made. There are many variations possible. There are different recipes for stir-fries like Chinese, Thai, Malaysian and so on.

I have also posted the recipe of Mushroom pepper fry which is a spicy recipe of mushrooms with black pepper.

This particular mushroom stir fry recipe is Indian style and uses basic ingredients that are easily available in an Indian kitchen. Everything is cooked in one pot or pan.

All the prep work, you need to do is slice the onions, green chilies and chop the mushrooms. The rest of the cooking is just stir-frying or sauteing the ingredients in a pan.

This Mushroom Stir Fry tastes best with chapatis, parathas or any bread. You can also use it as a stuffing in sandwiches, wraps and rolls. The recipe can be easily scaled as per your requirements.
