Chilli Mushroom Wet

Chilli Mushroom Wet

Evey time and every moment life will connect with nature in some or other way. Every thing in nature teaches us some thing. Sometimes I feel mushrooms are like good and bad. Some are edible and some are poisonous, so we must be careful choosing them like choosing good or bad in our life. But I never understand what is good and what is bad. Sometimes we feel something is good but that may appear bad to someone. Maybe it depend upon the situation I think. But one thing is for sure that we cannot be good to everyone or bad to everyone all the time. One thing we can do is leave it to the people, to think what is good or bad about us and be happy every time and enjoy the life each and every second thanking god for this beautiful and wonderful life and nature.

Coming to the recipe, Chilli mushroom is an Indo chinese recipe. Chilli mushroom will be spicy and appetizing and easy to prepare. We can make it dry or wet. For this recipe, no need of deep frying mushrooms.
