Mushroom Pickle

Mushrooms are usually used to make masala or gravy type curries. Here is a delicious and simple pickle recipe with mushrooms.You can serve it with rice or breads as a side dish.Here I have used a packet of button mushrooms. If you refrigerate it will last for one month.


  • Mushroom – 250 gram
  • Ginger – 1 teaspoon
  • Garlic – 1 teaspoon
  • Chilli powder – 2 tablespoon
  • Fenugreek powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Asafoetida – a pinch
  •  Vinegar – 2 tablespoon
  • Gingelly oil – 2-3 tablespoon


  1. Mix the chopped mushroom with 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder,1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder, salt and keep aside.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and add the mushroom. Cook on high heat, till the mushrooms are cooked. Take out the cooked mushroom and keep it aside.
  3. In the same pan add mustard seeds.When they start to splutter, add the curry leaves and asafoetida.
  4. Add chopped ginger and garlic and cook till the raw smell goes.
  5. Add the chilli powder, fenugreek powder and saute till oil separates. Add the cooked mushroom and mix well.
