    • this recipe is like a continental style recipe. so thats why green chilies and turmeric powder is not added. if you want, you can add. you can also add red chilli powder.

  1. it was so juicy and yummy that it got over within seconds, even my 19 month old loved it?( and she is a fussy eater) so thanks a lot for the awesome recipe?5 stars

    • aman, oven ke bina bhi ban sakte hain. tawe ko dheemi aanch par garam kare. thoda sa tel tawe par dal de. phir mushrooms ko rakhe. bilkul waise hi rakhe, jaise photo main, baking tray par rakha gaya hain. mushrooms ko dakhkhan/lid se cover kare. dheeme aanch ya sim pe pakaye. jab mushroom brown ho jaye aur pani chode, toh woh pak gaye hain. cheese bhi melt ho jayega.

      • My mushrooms released a lot of water and became very soft . They broke while eating. Any ideas ? Is it because of the moisture in the stalks or low temperature of the oven? Or because I washed mushrooms and not dry them properly ?

      • Also, I had a dish called mushroom saufiana once in a restaurant. Fennel and cheese. With some cream I suppose. I was hoping if u could help me crack that recipe too. Thanks. ?

      • they have got done too much. as soon as they begin to release water, the mushrooms are done. since the stalks are cooked, there is no moisture in them.
