Moreover, Chilli Garlic Mushroom has a rich savour of garlic, tender sweetness from caramelized onions, subtle pungence from vinegar and soy sauce, all in all, nothing less than a treat for your taste buds.

Chilli Garlic Mushroom Recipe


Kitchen Tools Used


  1. First, add oil in a frying pan on low to medium heat. Add finely diced onions, garlic and saute until golden brown and translucent.
  2. Then, add vinegar, soy sauce, sweet chilli sauce. Mix well and cook on low heat.
  3. Next, add mushrooms* and stir so that the sauce is evenly coated on every mushroom. Keep cooking on low heat.
  4. Further, add salt, red chilli powder, black pepper powder and mix well.
  5. Then, cover the pan and cook on low heat for 5-7 minutes.
  6. Finally, garnish with coriander (dhaniya) leaves, sesame (til) seeds and serve Chilli Garlic Mushroom hot.


  1. If sesame oil is not available, saute in butter and add some olive oil because butter on its own has low smoking and burning point.
  2. Also, I have added whole mushrooms in this recipe, you can add sliced mushrooms as well.

  • I added enoki mushrooms to this after the button mushrooms were nearly done cooking, and it made for a deliciously noodle-like mushroom side dish. Thanks for the recipe!
