Being a tambrahm, growing up eating vethakuzhambu and poricha kootu I used to think mushroom as some non-vegetarian stuff when I was a kid 🙂 Things changed after I got married. Shiva is very fond of mushrooms and whenever we go out for dinner he will definitely order something made out of it. Eventually I started liking them. However the stores nearby our place sell only ‘button’ mushrooms. I hope someday will get to try other varieties too.
If you don’t have enough time to cook or you have to go to office early then the best lunchbox menu would be this Mushroom rice. It takes max 15 minutes to prepare this dish and you can have it with a simple raita or potato chips.
