Creamy Mushroom Pete

Shops near our new house does not stock mushroom :( Saturday went to the new Supermarket which is about 2 KM from my house. Could not believe my luck when the shop keeper told me that he gets fresh button mushroom twice and week and he will give me a call when the next delivery comes :))))

So came home with 1 pack of mushroom and all the other ingredients I need to make PASTA.. after reaching home realised I forgot to get the main ingredient yes friends the pasta!!!!!

Then some innovative cooking from yours truly resulted in Creamy Mushroom Pete.

You need:

Button mushrooms - 10 - 12
cream - 1 tbsp
Milk - 2 cup
Garlic - 5 - 6 finely chopped
onion - 2 tbsp finely chopped
Burger Bun - 1
Grated cheese - 1 tbsp
Pepper - as per taste freshly ground
Butter - 1 tbsp
Corn flour / Maida - 0.5 tbsp

Clean the mushroom by peeling off the outer covering.
Remove the stalk carefully make sure that the mushroom is not crushed.
chop the stalk and keep it aside.
Take the bun. Carve the bun so that you get a wide hole in the centre (bun looks like a empty cup).
Heat the pan and fry the extracted bun pieces till they become golden.
Heat butter in a pan.
Add the garlic fry for 3 mins till the raw smell goes off.
Add the onion fry for 2 mins.
Add the chopped mushroom stalk and the button mushroom and fry till the mushroom becomes soft and soggy.
Remove the pan from flame and then remove the button mushroom from the pan (with a spoon!!) and keep it aside.
Add the flour and fry for 1 min on med - high flame.
Now take the pan off the flame and add milk.
Keep the pan on the flame and cook on high for 1 min,
Add the cream and the ground pepper.
Mix well. Now add the bun pieces that you have cut from the bun (make bite size pieces).
Allow the sauce to thicken a bit.
Add salt mix well and remove from flame.

Keep the bun on a microwave safe plate
arrange the mushroom in the bun and around it.
Add the sauce and top it with cheese.
Add a bit of pepper and salt (optional)
Heat in the microwave on high for 1 min (till cheese melt).
Eat HOT...
