Garlic Mushroom is the nice preparation of button mushrooms in huge amount of garlic. It is a classic Chinese appetizer which is exclusively tasty and mouth melting. Once I had this dish with my husband in one of the restaurant. After eating I realized that how garlic with mushroom is going so well and creating the incredible taste, so I definitely wanted to try that. I tried and fortunately got the success because of easy and limited ingredients used in this dish.garlic-mushroom

Chef Tips:

  1. Try to serve garlic mushroom within 10 minutes, otherwise mushroom will sweat and become tasteless.
  2. I have added roasted cumin because of its aroma which spread all over, otherwise it is optional ingredient.
