Pepper Mushroom / Mushroom Kalimirch

Pepper Mushroom is an easy yet tasty dish for the mushroom lovers. Normally, in restaurants they prepare pepper mushroom with the addition of green capsicum. As we all know mushroom and capsicum pair good with each other. However, I never knew mushroom and red bell pepper pair even better than them unless I prepared pepper mushroom along with red bell pepper. Red bell pepper has lot of vitamain C and adds a tangy flavour to the dish. If you have not tried this pair, next time when you buy mushroom don't forget to get red bell pepper!

Normally, pepper mushroom is served as a vegetarian starter item. However, you can serve it as sides with main course including paratha or fried rice or jeera rice. Also you can prepare a good sandwich using this stir fry. Another way to serve pepper mushroom in the form of roti roll or wrap stuffing. Isn't it a great idea to use a single dish multiple ways. 

Pepper Mushroom my way

Coming back to the recipe, this is a dish I often prepare and I have created this mushroom pepper fry recipe according to our tastebuds. Normally, pepper fry recipes contains curry leaves, I have not added but if you wish you can add curry leaves as tadka in the beginning. Similarly, addition of sesame seeds is not a common practice when you are making pepper fry however, I have added sesame seeds to add crunch in every bite. This is purely optional so you can omit this too.
