North Indian Curry



Today i have for you all a quick stir fry recipe that goes well both with rice / phulka . Made from babycorn , mushroom and capsicum , it not only looks very attractive but will surely fit your healthy diet. This “ Mushroom Babycorn Pepper Fry ” is very simple and easy to make …i would say it is great for a quick weeknight meal .The highlight of this recipe is the freshly roasted pepper which gives it an awesome flavor. The soft meaty mushroom and crunchy crispy babycorn blends beautifully while capsicum enhances the flavor . 

My daughter loves babycorn and mushroom . So when 2 of her favorite veggies came together.. it was like a feast to her. She relished this stir fry to the core and enjoyed eating as such too.Hubby who is not a fan of mushroom surprisingly liked it in this avatar. Wow !! do i need any more reasons to make this mushroom baby corn pepper fry often ?? This is my favorite quickie dish for lunch / dinner on a busy day. I make this stir fry sometimes with either mushroom / babycorn too. You too give a try .. i am sure you will enjoy the flavors of peppery mushrooms and babycorn. Here you go…

    Baby Corn Pepper Fry recipe
  • Serve hot Mushroom babycorn pepper fry with rice / roti .


  1. As mentioned earlier , you can make this stir fry with just mushroom + capsicum / Baby corn + capsicum too .
  2. Freshly roasted pepper and cumin powder gives a nice flavor to this stir fry . So try to use fresh homemade powder only . Pepper uantity is your choice.
  3. If you want you can add ginger garlic paste too .
  4. I would recommend not to overcook the veggies in this stir fry .
  5. If the veggies are sticking to the kadai while cooking , you can add oil or sprinkle little water
