Mushrooms are a low calorie food,rich in Vitamin B…so nutritive!!I cook mushrooms atleast once a week…This is a dish I make quite often….I am still wondering as to why i didnt post till now!!! 🙂 We always get rains here…specially in the nights..and the days are usually scorching hot!Perfect for the growth of mushrooms in our Backyard..most commonly Abalone Mushrooms..the crisp,white,spongy kind with the rich buttery flavour with notes of pepper and a velvetty texture..perfect for stir fried cooking.

This is a stir fried dish,using coconut and it tastes absolutely soo perfect!I never miss a chance cooking this when we get mushrooms in our backyard!Here goes the recipe.
