Stuffed Mushrooms

This recipe may appear too elaborate and complicated to try, but it’s not.


  • 200g button mushroom
  • 2 tbsp garlic cloves, minced
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped onions
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped capsicum
  • 1 tsp oil
  • Grated mozzarella cheese
  • Pinch of turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • Salt [as per taste]

Preparation method

  1. Clean the mushrooms and carefully twist the stem to remove it. Chop the stems finely.
  2. Add oil to the pan. Add garlic and onions and saute till the onions turn transparent.
  3. Toss in the capsicum and cook for a few minutes. Add the chopped mushroom stem, salt and all the spices. Cook until all the moisture evaporates. Leave it to cool.
  4. Brush the mushroom caps with olive oil. Using a small spoon, fill each mushroom cap with the stuffing, pressing slightly to fill the caps well.
  5. Preheat the oven at 180⁰ C for 10 minutes. Arrange the stuffed mushrooms on a baking tray and grill for five minutes.
  6. Remove them from the oven, sprinkle some grated cheese on top and grill for another two minutes. Serve hot.

Stove top method

Grease a non stick pan, place the stuffed mushrooms and cook covered for five minutes, turning once or twice in between.
