mushroom kaalan masala reciperoadside kalan recipe | mushroom kaalan masala recipe | mushroom stir fry chaat with step by step photo and video recipe. chaat recipes are very popular among indians and are made with different ingredients. the most popular one’s hail from mumbai or delhi, but each state and region has its own variations and way to prepare it. one such hugely popular south indian chaat recipe from tamil cuisine is roadside mushroom masala or kalan masala recipe, known for its fusion variations.

i have posted a lot of chat recipes till now, but this recipe of mushroom kalan is very unique. basically, the uniqueness is due to the combination of indo chinese style and spice mix. by the look of it, you may feel a meat-based recipe, but has the flavour of indo chinese sauce and street spic mix. this recipe is generally served as it is without any bread or rice. but my personal favourite combination is kaalan and malabar parotta. you may very well serve it with any choice of bread recipe, but layered paratha is the best combo. you may also make the same variation with paneer and gobi, but may not get the same taste and result.

furthermore, i would also like to add some more tips, variations and suggestions to a spicy roadside kalan recipe. firstly, try to use fresh and tender button mushrooms for this recipe. it has moisture and softness in it which makes it ideal for this recipe. you may also use a food processor to chop these fresh and tender mushroom. secondly, the chopping has to be very fine and do not compromise on the size of it. the whole idea of having finely chopped mushroom is to resemble minced meat and also can be mashed with the sauce. lastly, deep fry these mushroom pakora in a low to medium flame so that it gets cooked properly. also, do not overcrowd the oil and deep fry them in batches.
