[Cooking] Mushroom Stroganoff

Today lunch was fun. No,I dint go out but tried out a new recipe and must say it turned out yummy.. Thanks to my uncle for introducing me to this dish and to my aunt for giving me the recipe..

2weeks back when my uncle(s) were here, delhi uncle said “if you get me that Maggie masala cubes, I can make Mushroom Stroganoff “,but for whatever reason I wasn’t able to get that and so it was time for them to leave and they went back.. Couple of days back when I had gone shopping, I made it a point to pick up 2packets of mushrooms (we get only Button mushrooms here) and also picked up 2cubes of Maggie veg masala cubes…

I kept gramma informed last nite that today I plan on making Mushroom Stroganoff and she should go ahead and plan the rest of the lunch menu acc to their taste…

Around 12 noon ,right after my shower , I called my uncle who passed the phone to my aunt thru whom I got the recipe and voila,I did make Mushroom Stroganoff, and must say it tasted absolutely YUMMMMY and is best eaten with steamed rice…

Here is the recipe.. from what I remember…

Mushroom Stroganoff








Ingredients (Serves 2-3)

  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil or any other oil of your choice(for cooking)
  • 1 packet. mushrooms, wiped and chopped 4
  • 2 large capsicums chopped
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 3-5cloves of garlic (optional)
  • 2 tbsp curd
  • 1 tbsp fresh cream
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder( optional)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp Tomato puree
  • 1 tbsp Tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 ½ cup warm water
  • 1 cube Maggie veggie Masala
  • 1 tbsp Maida or Cornflour

Method

Take a pan, add some oil and sauté the garlic and onion till onion turns golden brown, then add in the chopped mushrooms and capsicum . Cook until mushrooms turn glossy and capsicum is ¾ done. Once done, set aside

Take a bowl, pour the 1 ½ cup warm water, and dissolve the Masala cube in it. Now to this add the tomato puree, ketchup, W sauce, salt, pepper, chilli powder and finally the flour. Put this on the stove and cook till the sauce reaches a shiny texture and looks nice and light when you pour from the spoon.. Turn off stove and set this aside as well.

In a bowl whip the curd and cream well and add this to the sauce mixture.

Now add the sautéed veggies to this and mix well. You can serve it as it is with Hot Steamed rice or you can blend the whole thing and let boil for a min and serve with the rice...

Enjoy.. Bon Apettite..

EEEEEEEEEEEE
see i brushed my teeth.
Now how do i get to taste your Mushroom Strongandhoffhoffoof ?
The name itself sounds very undigestive,like i am eating some uranium rocks. Has any one tasted your stronghoofhaaf ? are they talking to the wall after eating it ? Can't you have a gentler name like Molagha bajji ?
i love molagha bajji on the road side, mirchi vada in the north. i eat vonly vonly roadside stuff when i am traveling.

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
