Spicy Mushroom masala / Kaalan masala


Many people consider mushroom as a non vegetarian food. No matter how much you convince them, they will not indulge this healthy treat. For those who consider mushrooms as non vegetarian food, I suggest a simple search in wikipedia on mushrooms. People who relish this can go ahead to the mushroom masala recipe...

Wisdom stands at the turn in the road and calls upon us publicly, but we consider it false and despise its adherents. - Kahlil Gibran

Ingredients:
1 pack Mushroom - 500 gms appx
Onion - 1 cut lengthwise
Tomato - 1 medium sized
Garlic - 5 pods crushed

Masalas:
Coriander Powder
Turmeric Powder
Chilly Powder
Chicken masala
Salt and oil as required

1. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and urad dal and let it splutter.
2. Add crushed garlic and saute till it turns light brown. Add onions and fry for 5-7 minutes.
3. Now add the tomato and stir well. Add mushrooms and saute for 5 minutes. Cover it with a lid for another 3 minutes on low flame.
4. Add the masalas and salt and stir until the raw smell goes.
5. Add a cup of water and stir well. Cover with the lid for 5 minutes or till the mushrooms are cooked.

Health Quotient:
Mushrooms are very low in saturated fat and contain no cholestrol. Have a good amount of dietary fiber, iron, Vitamin C and zinc.

In 2009, a large case-control study of woman, revealed that women who consumed mushrooms had approximately 50% lower incidence of breast cancer, while those who consumed mushrooms and green tea had a 90% lower incidence.
