Mushroom Aloo Tikkis ~ Spicy Potato Stuffed Mushrooms ~ Baby Portabello Mushrooms stuffed with Indian spiced potatoes34 COMMENTS Posted by KALVA at 5:22:00 PM
We love mushrooms! Even my 2 year old cant have enough mushrooms sauteed in very little ghee along with her rice. Mushrooms are a very good source of fiber, protein, folate, vitamin C etc., and the best part very low in fat and calories( 1 cup of sliced mushrooms counts upto 15 calories ). I love to add mushrooms in my noodles. pasta, pulaos and curries. Sometimes to make to sound it a bit fancier i would bake these Potato stuffed Mushrooms. Potatoes are spiced with kasuri methi, garam masala and peas, stuffed into Mushrooms and then baked into perfection. These mushroom aloo tikkis are so cute and super easy to make.
- 10-15 White mushrooms / Baby portabellos
- 1-2 large red potatoes
- 1/4 cup peas
- 1 tbsp kasuri methi
- 1 tsp garam masala
- 2 green chillies
- 1 lime/lemon
- oil for saute
- salt to taste
- Boil potatoes, peel, mash them and keep aside
- In a kadai, heat 1 tbsp oil add peas, followed by chopped Green chillies, turmeric, kasuri methi, garam masala and then mashed potatoes
- Saute for 2 minutes add salt and switch off the heat. And lime juice to taste and let it cool.
- Heat oven to 350 F, wash mushrooms under running water and let them dry
- Remove the stems and stuff them with the spiced potato mixture, and then apply oil with cooking oil sprayer to cover the mushroom evenly
