This was inspired from Bellpepper Mushroom subzi from Denny's Oh Taste N See. I am sending this to Blog Bites 9: The holiday buffet event hosted by Nupur of One Hot Stove. The idea of this event is to try out any recipe from another blog and get it to the holiday buffet. Today being Christmas, I had every reason to make special dishes different from south-indian which would normally feature in our kitchen, one of those being this Bellpepper Mushroom Pepper fry.
This was bit dry and so I wouldnt name it as a subzi :)
Mushrooms - 10 oz pack - clean and cut each mushroom into 6 pieces.
Green Bell pepper - 1/2 of a big one, cut into 1 inch cubes
Onion - 1/2 of a large onion. Cut into thin slices
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tbsp
Madras curry powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Black pepper powder - 1/2 tsp freshly ground
Salt to taste
Oil - 3 tsp
Heat oil in a kadai and add the sliced onions and saute until golden brown. Add turmeric powder and the ginger garlic paste. When the raw smell disappears add the mushroom. The water will start coming out of the mushrooms and mushrooms will get cooked in the water. When the mushroom have shrunk and almost all of the water has evaporated add the curry powder,bell peppers and salt. Add a little water, around 2 tbsp and allow the bell peppers to cook but still has a crunch to it. Now add the freshly ground pepper and mix and turn off the heat. Serve hot with pulao or chapathis.
