Coconut just goes well with almost anything, you know..may it be fish, chicken, or eggs… This special recipe using freshly grated coconut with some spices, is perfect to be had with appam, idiyappam or even rice.

Fried Mushroom Rice

Mushroom falls under vegetarian chicken category for me.. together with soya, gobi etc. The rich taste of marinated and fried mushrooms are just awesome. I use to make fried rice with normal blanched and stir fried mushrooms. But frying well marinated mushrooms and then preparing the rice, takes it to another level. It turns out to be truly delicious and full of flavor. The more time you give the mushrooms to rest in the marinade, the more juice and flavor it would release when you take a bite. Serve hot.
