Spicy Mushroom In Sriracha And Sambal Oelek Sauce

During my trip to The USA in November 2013, my husband got lots of sauces for me. He got introduced to Sriracha sauce and Sambal sauce through some friends and also when he visited some Asian restaurants. He knew that I as a foodie would love these sauces. He immediately found out the names of the sauces, but was able to find only Sriracha sauce in CA. Sriracha is hot chilly sauce, which is from Thailand. It is used in Thai cooking. In US, it is known as "Rooster Sauce" or "Cock Sauce".

Just last month we visited Australia. During this trip, again I as a foodie went in search of something which I can't find easily in India. Luckily I found Sambal Oelek Sauce in Woolworth's store at the Gold Coast. Sambal Oelek sauce is Indonesian chilly sauce. Now it was a challenge for me from my hubby to use these sauces and to innovate something new. So I came up with this new dish which has got the spiciness of Sriracha sauce and mild sweetness of Sambal sauce. Do try this and I am sure you and your family will love it. It is simple and gets cooked without any hassles. Watch out for more innovative recipes on my blog using these two sauces.

4 tablespoon sambal oelek sauce
2 tablespoon sriracha sauce
1 packet button mushrooms i.e. around 12-15 mushrooms
1 onion
1 tomato
4-5 garlic pods
1 tsp chilly flakes
3 tablespoon olive oil
Coriander leaves
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning

Wash and chop the mushrooms into 4-5 pieces, cut horizontally.
In a kadai, add olive oil. When it heats, add chopped onion and fry. When onion turns pinkish, add peeled and chopped garlic pods. Fry for 3-4 minutes on low flame with the kadai being covered by lid.
Next add tomato and fry till tomatoes turn mushy.
Now add the chopped mushroom and fry till the mushrooms gets cooked. It will take atleast 20 minutes to cook. You will notice that it turns soft and will wilt.
Now add the sauces. Mix properly with the mushrooms.
Add chilly flakes and italian seasoning and mix well.
Add salt to taste.
Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
