Mushrooms and Mustard


Winter is a time when steaming hot snacks are always welcome… and if you’ve had your fill of Pakoras and Samosas, here’s something completely different: Mushrooms and Mustard! In this recipe, the definitive flavour of Mustard Oil mingles with the taste of garlic to create a unique mouth-watering experience.

The ingredients for this recipe are short and simple:

  • Small Button Mushrooms: 300 grams
  • Garlic: 1 clove
  • Mustard Oil: 1 tablespoon
  • Lemon Juice: 2 teaspoon
  • Tomato Puree: 1 tablespoon
  • Sugar: Just a pinch
  • Salt: to taste


Peel and crush the garlic.


Heat the Mustard Oil in a pan. Add the crushed garlic and let it fry for half a minute or so.

Add the mushrooms, lemon juice, tomato puree, sugar and salt. Mix thoroughly. Cover the pan and let the ingredients cook for three minutes on a medium flame. Occasionally, remove the lid and give the contents a stir. Use a fork to check that the mushrooms are done.

Your Mushrooms and Mustard snack is now ready. Serve with cocktail toothpicks or with dinner rolls. This recipe is for a quantity to serve two persons; increase the ingredients if you have more guests dropping by.
