Mushroom Roast Recipe - Mushroom Recipes

Mushroom roast recipe, how to make mushroom or  mushroom ularthiyathu.

mushroom roast

Mushroom roast or mushroom ularthiyathu- is a quick and easy recipe made with mushrooms and a few Indian spices especially crushed black pepper. This mushroom roast is a simple Kerala style dish; and pairs well with rice or Indian flatbread (roti).

Button mushrooms or portobello mushrooms works very well,  though originally this roast is made with wild mushrooms also(check notes). The flavor of  curry leaves and crushed pepper stands out and the roasting in coconut oil gives it a unique taste.

Come monsoons in Kerala, wild mushrooms were abundant, during my childhood; my grandmother used to make this mushroom roast for dinner and whenever I make this, I still can relive those days.....such is the power of home-cooked food!

The mushrooms get a dark color after roasting in coconut oil.

Put the flame on high and mix the mushroom well. Once it is heated water will start to release from the mushrooms, reduce heat to medium, cover and cook the mushrooms for about 3-5 mins. Once the mushrooms are cooked and water has dried up, stir it well and allow it to roast for a minute or two on low flame. Add in crushed pepper and again roast it for 7 minutes or until done.

NOTES

  • Once mushroom is washed slice it up. Do not slice mushrooms and then rinse in water as it will make the mushroom watery or absorb water.
  • This mushroom roast or mushroom ularthiyathu has all the masalas and roasting/sauting it helps to bring out the flavors. The crushed pepper and the curry leaves flavor stands out.
  • Try to make this mushroom ularthiyathu in coconut oil. If using wild mushroom always put in turmeric water and wait for sometime; if color changes that mushroom is not fit for use. Disclaimer-Some wild mushrooms are poisonous and hence not fit to consume.

  5. I said i tried making your never fail cake . It turned out sticky on top and would not get brown on top although the sides were grown. Is it because i did not separate dry and wet ingredients? Please help. Really want to try it again

    1. I hope u have used fresh ingredients and all the ingredients are at room temp. Preheating oven is a must which should not be skipped. Next time try in a slightly larger pan and make sure you bake at 180 degree C....hope this helps.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe: Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry"

Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes.

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.

Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs.

The first time she tau…

Vattayappam / Steamed Rice Cake / Kerala Style

Vattayappam is Kerala's own fermented SteamedRice Cake. One of the healthiest traditional tea time snack with almost no oil. It is popular in the Christian communities of Kerala, though not much popular in North Kerala/ Malabar.

 "Vatta" means "round" ......vattayappam is basically rice and coconut grinded together and fermented with yeast....it is very soft and pillowy.....a slightly sweet snack......these days, it has found its place in bakeries especially in Kochi and Kottayam...and when I got a request from an anonymous reader asking for vattayappam recipe...I thought of sharing the recipe...as it is very easy to make...and does not take much time to make. I usually make it as an after school snack as it is very healthy and filling for kids.
