I have already posted Mushroom Capsicum Curry recipe in this blog. Today I am posting a tasty mushroom fry or varuval recipe. Since the mushrooms are cooked without adding any water (cooked with its own water content) the varuval tastes good. The roasted onions and ginger garlic paste too adds a good taste and flavour to the varuval.
Mushrooms are naturally low in sodium, fat, cholesterol, and calories. In addition to providing basic nutrition, they help prevent chronic disease due to the presence of antioxidants and beneficial dietary fibers such as chitin and beta-glucans.
