Chilli Mushroom Recipe
  • You can also use store bought chilly sauce and tomato sauce/ketchup. But if you don't like the tanginess or saltiness of them, you can just use the fresh homemade ones which I have given here.
  • This Chilli Mushroom is really a "chilly" mushroom, too spicy to our taste, So adjust the red chilly sauce level according to your spice level.
