Shiitake Mushroom Stir Fry

Pin It Now!
Shiitake mushrooms for fabulous for their flavor,texture and nutritional content.For me it works as a great substitute for chicken.Shiitake mushrooms are a dietary staple in Asia and are popular for their medicinal values amongst the mushroom varieties.They can be used in both fresh and dry forms and are very healthy.They have a very unique smoky flavor yet not too strong and blend very well with other ingredients.

Ingredients
5 oz pack shiitake mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped onions
3 cloves garlic chopped finely
2 tsp cilantro leaves chopped
1 tsp ginger chopped finely
1 tsp fresh tomato puree-optional
1 sprig curry leaves
3 tbsp oil
Salt to taste

Spices
1 tsp freshly crushed fennel seeds
1 tsp kashmiri chilli powder
1/2 tsp cumin coriander powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2-1 tsp sadaf garam masala
2 cinnamon sticks
3 cloves
Method
Heat oil in a pan add cinnamon and cloves,then add onions,salt.When onions are cooked well add ginger,garlic,fennel and stir to blend well,then add tomato puree,chopped mushrooms and stir cook for a few mins till well blended.At this point if you don't want to add any more spices you could add the curry leaves and finish cooking the mushrooms.If not add cumin coriander,garam masala,chilli powder,1 tsp water and stir to blend well.Add the fresh curry leaves,stir and finish cooking the mushrooms.Enjoy hot over some basmati rice.

Though you chopped it finely your mushrooms are firm in shape. I liked it. Feels very hungry after seeing your platter.
