Pepper-Garlic Mushrooms & Potatoes

          Mushrooms and potatoes pair very well, this is another side dish that needs very few ingredients, yet very flavorful. Great with rice and dal, or with rotis, or also as such as an appetizer. It gets it flavor from the garlic, pepper and cumin seeds and is very easy to prepare, do give it a try if you like mushrooms..

Need To Have
  • Chopped Mushrooms - 2 cups
  • Potato - 1 medium cubed
  • Fresh Green Peas - 1/4 cup
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Pepper - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Garlic - 3 cloves

          Microwave or cook the green peas separately. Remove the top rough part of the garlic but don't peel it completely. Coarsely pound the pepper, cumin seeds and the garlic. Heat some oil, add the potatoes, saute for 5 minutes, then add the turmeric powder, salt and the chopped mushrooms. Keep sauteing it uncovered till both the potatoes and the mushrooms are cooked. Then add the peas, and the crushed pepper-cumin-garlic mixture, keep mixing for another 2 or 3 minutes. Remove and serve it warm with rice or rotis.

Microwaving the peas, will retain the green color.
Do not add any water to cook the potatoes and don't cover and cook.
