Jump to RecipeJump to Recipe card

Presenting yet another appetizer made with just a single vegetable. Mushrooms are very meaty and comes with a good bit of protein to boot. This recipe is made with White button mushrooms to showcase the glowing color of Indian spices. This is a fabulous Fusion recipe which combines the spicy curry flavors with tangy cream cheese to provide both the zing and the cooling effect. The mushrooms will explode in your mouth and present both the ‘yin and the yang’ ☯

First a mixture of turmeric and curry powder is slathered on the mushrooms and allowed to marinate. Next they are stuffed with jalapeño cream cheese. Finally roast this in a hot oven until golden in color. Very simple yet very attractive. 

Party alert – Beware these mushrooms disappear quickly in a party !
