Mushroom and peppers in cilantro sauce.

This is another good way to consume the nutritious mushroom. Always liked capsicum with mushrooms. This dish is done in a jiffy.The ingredients used are very basic and available anytime in your pantry. The colours attract any one's attention. A very successful pot luck dish. The crunch in the peppers is sure a contrast to the softer mushroom. This qualifies as a bachelor's cooking dish too. Easy to manage and the end  product a tasty green sauce with mushrooms and colourful peppers. I vote it as one of the great tasting mushroom dishes!

Ingredients                                                      For Seasoning

1 pound button mushrooms                                 1 tablespoon butter
2 cups peppers chopped(all colours)                   2 pods elaichi
1 big onion chopped                                           1/2"cinnamon
1 toamato chopped
2 green chillies
2 red chillies
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
6 cloves garlic
1'' ginger
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 tablespoon coconut
1 bunch cilantro chopped


First grind the ginger, garlic ,chillies and the onions in to a paste. Then grind the coconut, tomato and cilantro in to another paste and keep aside. Now heat the skillet and add the butter and once its melted, add elaichi and cinnamon . Then add the mushrooms and saute them for 2 minutes and then mix in the ginger,garlic,chilli and onion paste. Cook it well till the aroma  emerges. Now add the peppers and give it a good mix and stir in the coconut ,cilantro and tomato paste and add salt and garam masala with it.Cook till done.Keep the crunch in peppers.Serve hot with rotis or rice.
