Potatoes in Mushroom sauce – Potato mushroom fry

Potatoes in mushroom sauce – simple breakfast or side-dish recipe made with potatoes and two types of mushrooms. This can be a stand-alone recipe which will be good for any meal or can be a side-dish. This also makes a good lunch box recipe.

We love potatoes and who doesn’t love them 🙂 I like to eat them for breakfast or dinner as a whole. Potatoes are quite filling with good carbohydrates and can be eaten as a meal by itself. Only thing is you shouldn’t eat them as fried. Though frying is also okay occasionally when you control the portion size. I usually eat boiled potatoes as a salad or mashed for breakfast or dinner when I wanted to have a light meal. You can find aloo aloo choka, an Indian form of mashed potatoes recipe here.

In this recipe, I have used button mushrooms and shiitake mushrooms. You can use other types of mushroom as well. Garlic and mushrooms give an earthy flavor to potatoes. You can add more water or coconut milk and make this as a soup or gravy curry and can be eaten as a side for bread or roti.

Variations to this potatoes in mushroom sauce recipe:

  • I have baked potatoes for 30 minutes. You can steam or boil as well. If you boil them, make sure to use cooking liquid or cook with just enough water.
  • Instead of potatoes, you can use sweet potato as well.
  • Shiitake mushrooms powder is optional, but with it, you will get an earthy flavor. And it need not be powder, you can use fresh or rehydrated ones as well. Somehow I don’t like these, so I tried powder and it’s so good and I use these in soups as well. Dried shiitake mushrooms are available in Amazon.
  • You can add more water or coconut milk and make this as a soup.
  • Though I haven’t tried, you can bake this as well. Just add all ingredients to a baking dish and bake for 20 minutes. I will try and update the post.
