Mushroom Ghee Roast

Mushroom is my go to vegetable, because it’s takes very less time to cook, tastes so good and even rich of protein, calcium , vitamin B.

Mushroom Ghee Roast is all about ghee and roasted chilli masala.

A small story behind this recipe that how i came across about this, been to some Indian restaurant few months back here and when checking the menu i saw “Chicken Ghee Roast” and below that they mentioned ingredients like, fresh mushrooms roasted with indian red chillies and ghee. I like anything when ghee plays major role, so

The same day i came back home and checked many videos in youtube about chicken ghee roast, one thing confirmed me that, it is Mangalore recipe. In the suggestion i saw mushroom Ghee Roast, I jumped in joy because it is a perfect delight that vegetarians can enjoy.

Then i tried few recipes from YouTube but nothing made me happy in taste, then again i combined few ingredients from chicken ghee roast  to mushroom Ghee Roast. That turned out so yummy.

Today I’m sharing my version of Mushroom ghee roast here.
