Stuffed Mushroom for Global Kadai
I have been making this dish for more than 8 years now, and everytime its a big hit. But this is the first time I tried with different ingredients for the Global Kadai event started by Cilantro and being hosted right here for this month. I tried to Indianise this dish by adding grated paneer, and chat masala and also spiced it up a little bit by chopped green chillies.It turned out even more delicious than I expected. We can never go wrong with our own Indian ingredients right. So here's how I made it.
1 Packet Button Mushrooms (preferable large ones)
1 medium onion chopped.
2 tblsp finely chopped garlic
2 tblsp butter
1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
1/2 cup grate paneer
1/2 cup chopped coriander leaves
1 tblsp chat Masala or (1tsp garam masala + 1tsp Amchoor powder)
1 tsp chopped green chillies
1 cup shredded mozorella cheese
few tblsp Olive oil
Salt and peper to taste.
Preheat the Oven to 350F/200C
Wipe the Mushrooms with a wet towel, to remove all the dirt.
Remove the stalk and the rims with a knife.Reserve the stalk.
Finely chop the stalk, onions and garlic.
In a pan add the butter and when its hot add the onion, garlic and chopped green chillies.
Fry till the onion shrinks and turns tranlucent.
Add the chopped mushroom stalks, and fry well.
To this add the grated paneer, chat masala and chopped coriander leaves and stir for a few seconds.
Now add the bread crumbs, salt and pepper.Mix well.
Switch off the stove and allow it to cool.
Apply little olive oil over the mushroom cap, arrange in a baking tray and bake for 10 mins.
Now tightly stuff the baked mushrooms with prepared stuffing.
Sprinkle the shredded mozerrella cheese over the top and bake for another 10- 12 mins or until the cheese melts and golden spots appear on the top

The last date for the "Global Kadai" event is the 28th of this month. Hope to see your version of this yummy dish soon.
