Hi friends, I am going to introduce you with another side of me. I am a passionate cook,  hobbyist for last three years. It was a long story, when I first left home I use to eat outside then I started cooking. I love preparing my own delicious dishes in my own way. I myself a vegetarian for last 8 years. I prepare 35 most delicious vegetable Indian dishes.

This is an easy 15 minutes recipe, quick to prepare and very delicious!

Btw I am trying to use the English names for all of the items, any question please feel free to ask me. Thanks!

  1. I like to make stuffed mushroom caps. I make a paste of chopped mushroom stems, Italian bread crumbs, finely chopped celery, butter, 1 egg and crab meat. Saute mushroom caps in olive oil 2 minutes, use spoon to put mixture into caps, sprinkle white cheese and bake 10 minutes.

  2. Hello Vikram,
    It looks good. You are now a cook. I thank you for your kind comments,
    As always,

  3. I will try it and let you know how it turns out. I have my own version of that dish, but the mushrooms seem like a nice addition. I think “zeera” is cumin in English.
    Thanks for sharing and thanks for all the other lovely blogs.

  12. I do a fair amount of Indian cooking – from all over your country, actually. I’m excited to try your recipe! Thanks, Vikram!

  13. *cumin instead of zeera and yogurt. Greek yogurt instead of curd

  14. On January 1st I will be vegan for one year. Indian dishes have been a go to for me since this life-change. I had never tried them before. In fact I’d never even tried curry…..gasp! Now I’m a huge fan. I have not, however, endeavored to cook them myself. I may have to try now!
