This is the 2nd week of blog hopping an event started by Radhika and this time I found myself in Priya Mahadevan’s space: Now Serving. I am always amazed at her innovativeness. With a few ingredients at hand she creates wonderful dishes. Many of her dishes caught my eye like the Almond Cashew Falafels, Hanuman Vadai,Cocktail Veggies and Paneer hor d’oeuvres.
I decided to try out this simple yet flavorful and delicious rice from her space. Mushrooms are liked well by my daughter and hubby, also I tend to prepare a lot of flavored rice varieties for my kiddos and H’s lunch box and hence the choice. By the time I finished making the rice; my daughter had come a dozen times and checked if it was ready. All of us simply loved it. This recipe is going to be a regular at my place. You can find the original recipe here.
Serves: 3 – 4
What you’ll need:
1. Basmathi Rice – 2 cups
2. White Button Mushrooms – 10 to 12
3. Garlic – 4 to 5 cloves
4. Green Chillies – 2 to 3
5. Tomato – 2 medium
6. Spring Onions – 4 to 5 stems
7. Black Pepper Powder – ½ tsp

Cook rice separately, cool and keep it aside.
