Rawa Fried Mushrooms

During this rainy season in Goa, we get fresh mushrooms from the forest. Those are the tastiest mushrooms I have ever had. People living in the forest's work at my home and farmhouse, get those mushrooms for us. Sometimes we buy them from the local market.

My mom prepare's a variety of dishes with those mushrooms. My dad being a pure vegetarian loves those mushrooms. He would not dare to eat the button mushrooms available in packets. He just does not like these button mushrooms. But he loves those original forest mushroom's.

On one of my phone calls to Goa, I heard that they cooked those mushrooms from the forest. My mouth started watering. I immediately got a packet of mushrooms and prepared mushroom fry. I just love this dish.

10 -12 button mushrooms
1 tablespoon turmeric powder
1 tablespoon chilly powder
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 cup rawa /sooji / semolina
1 cup rice flour
1 tablespoon oil


Wash the mushrooms.
Cut them into 2 pieces. If the mushroom if big, then make 4 pieces.
Marinate by applying salt,turmeric and chilly powder for 15 Min's.

For frying:
Mix the rice flour, rawa, pinch of salt, 1/4 tsp each of turmeric powder and chilly powder. Put this on a big plate.

Dip the marinated mushrooms in this rawa. Ensure that it is fully covered with rawa.

Heat the frying pan and spread 1 tablespoon oil. Add more if required.
Place the mushrooms on the pan and fry on low flame.
After 10 minutes turn them to the other side.
Fry them for 20 minutes.
You know they are done when they turn brown.

Note: Always fry mushrooms on low flame and do not cover it while frying.

Serve it as a starter or as a side dish with rice.
