Welcome

Hello friends
Welcome to ''my cuisine''. According to me cuisine or the culinary art is just that an art. The art of creating delicious foods with a conscience to health has various dimensions with which we can experiment and I have just started to experiment in my kitchen. There is nothing more heartwarming than a hot aroma filled food on a cold rainy day to cheer us up or nothing more satisfactory than satisfying the taste buds of our loved and dear ones.This was the reason i found my new love for cooking. Hope you would enjoy my various recipes......

Stuffed mushroom caps

Mushroom stuffed with a filling flavoured with Italian dressing. This was a dish which I have tried a long time ago and it has always been yummy and mouth watering. As I had these mushrooms just sitting around in my fridge I just thought of making these stuffed mushrooms on a whim. I made it a bit spicy this time and wow it was sooo good with all those melting cheese and the spiciness of pepper.

  • Fresh coriander -  1 tbsp (chopped)
  • Cheese (mozzarella or cheddar) - 1 tbsp (grated)
  • Salt - 1tsp
  • Pepper - 3 tsps ( just 1 tsp if you like it to be less hot)
       Whisk together
  • Olive oil - 2 tbsps
  • Vinegar or lemon juice - 1 tbsp
  • Garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Pepper - a pinch 
Method:
  • Wash the mushrooms and hollow out the mushroom by removing the stem.  
  • Scoop out a little more. Pat dry.
  • Whisk olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. rub this oil on the inside and outside of each mushrooms.
  • Chop the stems finely and mix in with the remaining oil with the chopped onion. Saute them well with 1 tbsp of olive oil for 3 or 4 minutes until the onions turn transparent.
