I am a huge fan of stuffed mushrooms. I don’t remember when did I first had this, but I find this as one of dish which acts great starter or even a meal. As the name itself suggests, the main ingredient here is edible mushrooms. These mushrooms are then stuffed with filling (something that you like, and works as good combination with mushrooms), and subsequently baked. These mushrooms are ideally best served hot, but if you fancy eating at room temperature or cold, enjoy the flavour. In this step by step Stuffed Mushroom recipe of mine, I have used Chickpea as filling and is perfect for vegetarians. This is my fusion of India meeting East. This recipe comes very handy when you want to try out something offbeat unlike Samosa, Aalo Tikki Chaat, or bread rolls.

My childhood memories take me to spices of India. When it comes to India and fruits of India, Custard Apple is invariably one fruit I can not keep my hands off. Deliciously sweet Custard Apple sometimes can be off putting owing to seeds it has, however Custard apples are rich in anti-oxidants like vitamin C. Custard Apple is also rich in calcium, magnesium, iron, niacin and potassium. ‘Custard apple’, ‘Sharifa‘ or ‘Sitaphal‘, ‘Sita Pazham’, ‘Seetha Palam’, ‘Seetha Pazham’, ‘Sitaphala‘ are a few names it is known.
