Recipe Ingredients:

  • 200 gm, Button Mushrooms.
  • 500 ml Milk ( This recipe has used low fat milk)
  • 3-4 Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 1/2 Teaspoon White Pepper Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt or to taste

Recipe Directions:

  • Wash mushrooms under flowing water.

  • Switch off the heat and add white pepper powder. In case white pepper powder is not available black pepper powder also can be used.
  • Mix and add salt to taste and mix.
  • Cover and let it stand for a minute or so for the flavor of pepper and basil to mingle with mushroom.
  • Serve it piping hot. You can warm it up again before serving.
