Chili And Garlic Oyster Mushroom

Chili And Garlic Oyster Mushroom
When Sadik and I find oyster mushrooms in the market, our brains think in different directions. When he picks it up, he thinks about Indian Spicy Mushroom with lots of coriander seed powder that makes the mushrooms taste almost like meat. I think about Tom Yum Mushroom or simple stir fry. He wants his way and I want mine, so we end up buying 2 packages of oyster mushrooms which isn’t cheap. A package of 150 gm oyster mushroom is sold for Rs. 60. Crazy expensive I know, but we don’t get this often.

I showed you how to stir fried oyster mushroom with ginger and garlic before, here is an even easier way to cook it. I simply stir fry these lovely mushroom with fresh red chili and garlic and season it with some sugar and fish sauce. The basil helps giving the beautiful aroma to this dish, too. Yum! Eat this with some hot rice; it’s super comforting and filling.
