Stuffed mushrooms /bharwan khumb- easy starter recipe
There was a time some decades ago when I actually detested the thought of eating mushrooms. The only time I saw these mini umbrellas were during the rainy seasons when I was a little girl and used to play around the bushes along with the other kids.We were always told that they were poisonous species and hence unedible. It was only later when I came to know about the edible mushrooms and it was only a couple of years later I actually got to taste a mushroom dish. It was when a few friends and me had visited a restaurant. All of us got a very small portion of the mushroom gravy, but we really enjoyed it to the core. Then it was only after coming to Singapore, I was amazed to see so many different kinds of mushrooms in all so many shapes and sizes at the supermarkets.I was reluctant to buy them initially and however did not know which one to buy. Then a friend told me that white button mushrooms are widely used and I would like it. It has been a regular thing at my place since then and I have used in so many different ways. I love eating it and my hubby is okay with it too.
The stuffed mushrooms I made last week was something different from what I have ever tried with mushrooms. It was really good. I took the basic idea of the recipe from tongue ticklers. Thanks Harini.
