Fry up some mushrooms, coating them in garam masala, tumeric, chilli, ginger and of course garlic and you’ll have yourself a side-dish that really packs a punch. 

Ingredients

4tsp olive oil
4 green chillies, chopped finely
1 garlic clove, crushed
1cm ginger, grated
2 medium red onions, chopped finely
400g button mushrooms, quartered
1 1/2 tsp crushed black pepper
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1 tbsp cream
Juice of 1 lime

Method of Making :

1. Fry the green chillies, ginger and garlic in a pan for 1-2 minutes. Add the onions, cook for 3-5 minutes until soft.

2. Add the mushrooms, black pepper, turmeric and garam masala. Coat the mushrooms in the fragrant oil and cook on a medium heat for 5-8 minutes or until the mushrooms are cooked. Be careful not to over-cook them as this can turn them squishy.

3. Mix in the cream and lime juice. Stir in over a low heat.

4. Serve as a starter or side dish
