Mushroom Chaat

Mushroom Chat final


This is an easy recipe where the Portobello’s/mushrooms are stuffed or topped with potatoes, chickpeas and chives. This makes a fast and filling dish where this recipe can be served as an appetizer or a party snack. Here the Portobello’s are stuffed with regular potato filling and I used chickpeas along with potato to make a crunchy addition. Using chaat masala, cumin powder, black salt gives the feel of chat and so I would love to call this as a mushroom/Portobello chaat. Chutney can be included if desired (link)

  2. With the exception of the (ugh !) coriander, this looks WONDERFUL, Chitra !
    Could I grill the portobellos instead ?


  3. This is an interesting idea. Mushrooms have had a tendency not to agree with me (or vice-versa) over the years, but I seem to be developing a tolerance to them as I get older. I might (very cautiously) give this a try, as this recipe looks very tasty.
