this mushroom tikka recipe is an adaptation of the famous amritsari fish or amritsari maachli. though i had seen amritsari fish in the punjabi dhabas (road side eateries) many times…. for the first time i had made this dish for one of my cooking classes tests. i was paired with another girl and together we made this.

in this recipe i have grilled the mushrooms. however, you can fry them too. this same marination can be used with veggies like potatoes, aubergines, cauliflower and broccoli. you can even use tofu or paneer.

this mushroom tikka recipe does not use any yogurt/curd for marination. gram flour or besan is one of the main marinating ingredients along with ajwain or carom seeds. so the tikka does have the flavor of carom seeds. the rest of the spices and herbs all together enhance the overall taste and flavor in this dish.

when serving, always remember to sprinkle some chaat masala and lemon juice on the tandoori mushrooms. you can also keep the chaat masala and lemon slices in separate bowls, so that the rest of the folks add these as much they want.

this mushroom tikka can be served as a starter. it can also be had with naan or rotis accompanied with a mint-yogurt chutney or any green chutney or a herbed dip. some onion-lemon slices or even pickled onions go well with the tikka.

  1. Hi dassana..i have LG microwave which has both grill and convection mode…should i select grill mode or convection mode for this recipe?

    • you can select either. for tikkas i have used both the grill and convection mode when i used to use microwave oven. but do not select combination mode.
