Mushroom delights

*****

Nearly all recipes are aimed at non-vegetarians. But hang on a minute, you donít have to be a chef to make a good vegetarian diet - mushroom is a good solution out in the open

***

Mushrooms do not just give out a wonderful taste, but it guarantees your health too. As long as it is accessible in the closest market, you have nothing to worry as a vegetarian. Did you know that your mushroom meal gives you phosphorus, magnesium, potassium - all these rarely found in highly processed food? Plus this meal hasnít got fat or cholesterol at all.

Gardening the vegetables is a common practice now, but I would advise you against mushroom gardening. You have to be a sort of an expert to differentiate the toxic ones - which can be lethal at times - from good ones. So better bank on what the market sells.

The following mushroom recipes are mainly batters, but of two different kinds: gram flour and egg. They are both high protein, and a good replacement for the meat. But please make sure to use salt very sparingly, because large amounts not only ruin your favourite dish, but it affects your health too.

It doesnít take more than half an hour when you get used to this recipe. So over to you to feel the heavenly delight of mushrooms!
