Oven fried Mushrooms

Just today I realised there are many posts waiting to see the light of the day;-) Don't know why am letting them all sit instead of publishing. Some of friends and cousins had started asking me why am not being regular with my posts. Guess I have a lot of things to do at hand that by the time, I settle down to write a post , am too tired and keep it for another day. Wonder how all my fellow bloggers manage a family, work and also actively run events and regularly publish on the blog as well. I need to definitely strike a balance and I hope to do so very soon.....

Now, on to my favourite a quick starter! I had not been a great fan of mushrooms until one day I tried making this and found myself emptying the plate in a jiffy. It is such a simple mushroom starter and you can be sure it will be an instant hit!


- 2 cups of washed and chopped mushrooms
- 2 tsp olive oil or cooking oil
- 1/2 tsp cumin powder
- 1/4 tsp chilly powder
- 1/4 tsp pepper powder
- 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
- Salt to taste

Prep time: 10 mins                   Bake time: 30 mins


- Clean the mushrooms with a wet towel and slice them into desiered thickness. Never wash the mushrooms in running water or in a bowl as it makes them go mushy while cooking.
- In a mixing bowl, add the mushrooms and all the other ingredients and give them all a good toss and let it sit for 5 minutes. Go low on salt as mushrooms do not absorb too much salt.

- Pre- heat the oven to 350 deg F. Spread the mushrooms on a baking tray and leave it on the bottom rack of the oven for 20 to 30 minutes.
- Tasty & oevn fried mushrooms ready to go as a starter with soups or drinks!

Foot note:
- You are free to use any kind of seasoning of your choice!
