  • Clean the tomatoes and cut 1 tomato into 1 inch squares and other one into finely chopped pieces.
  • Clean the bell pepper and cut into 1 inch squares
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a pan and add 1-inch square cut pieces of onion, tomato and green bell pepper. Sauté in high frame for 2 minutes. Remove this from pan and keep it aside.

Cook’s Note

  • You may add 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder after adding mushrooms.
  • You may add any masala, like coriander powder, jeera powder, red chili powder. I personally prefer less masala food and I mostly use black pepper over red chili powder.
  • You can make brown mushrooms using this recipe as well.
  • Do not dry the water, if you like it with semi-gravy.
