This is a must for all mushroom lovers. A one dish meal which is nourishing and delicious. I used olive oil to make this and the result was amazing. Its easy to make, can be served in parties instead or an ordinary vegetable biryani and just needs a simple raita or a salad to go with it. I made it really spicy with a lot of spices and red chilli powder, but it can be made with less spices too.
INGREDIENTS FOR TWO:
250 grams of fresh white button mushrooms, cut off the stalk and wash them well under running water and then either slice or quarter them acording to choice. If they are small you can leave them whole.
1 onion chopped fine
1 tablespoon of ginger garlic paste (please watch my amazing bullet video to see how to make ginger garlic paste)
1 cup of basmati rice , soaked in water for 30 minutes
2 cloves, 1 bay leaf, 1/2 ” piece cinnamon
2-3 green chillies
1/4 cup of chopped coriander leaves
1 tablespoon of Nitu Didi garam masala powder
1.5 cups of water (or as needed)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
red chilli powder to taste
salt as needed
In a saucepan heat the olive oil and add the whole spices for a few seconds and then the ginger garlic paste . Cook for half a minute and then add the onions and brown them slowly on medium heat. This is an important step or else your pullao wont get this lovely brown color. Once they are browned add the garam masala, green chillies and the mushrooms and cook till the mushrooms sweat. Once they have released all their moisture and are dry add the red chilli powder, coriander leaves and then the washed and drained basmati rice. Add the water and let the rice cook till done. Check seasoning and serve.
Soo easy…so delicious and soo nourishing
