MISSING GOURMET FOOD DURING LOCKDOWN? TRY THIS.

I had posted these photographs on my Instagram, and almost everyone asked me for the recipe. TBH, even I was surprised by my cooking skills – both turned out quite delicious. During normal times, I would spend INR 500+ for this meal in a restaurant! :O

So, here’s the recipe.

Mushroom Sauce:

  • Finely chopped mushrooms
  • Finely chopped onion
  • Fresh Basil leaves
  • Oregano sprinkle
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • Butter
  • 1 spoon Maida 
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Milk
  • Salt
  • Black pepper

Melt butter in a pan (on low heat). Add garlic, followed by onion. Sprinkle a pinch of sugar. Let the onion become golden. Add the mushrooms and basil, and stir till all the water from the mushroom evaporates. Add salt, oregano, maida – keep stirring till the raw smell of maida goes away. Add milk and some water. Keep stirring on low flame till it becomes dense. Mushroom Sauce is ready!

Herbed Chicken:

  • Boneless Chicken 
  • Salt
  • Thyme 
  • Lemon juice
  • Red chilli powder (or Black pepper) [red chilli gave the chicken this colour]

Marinate the chicken with all the ingredients and leave it for a couple of hours. Pour out the marinated chicken in a pan. Rinse out the leftover marination from the bowl into the pan and cover it. Let the chicken cook on a low flame till water evaporates. Herbed Chicken is ready too!

For dinner, I added some pasta to the leftover Mushroom Sauce and added grated cheese.

If you are wondering why I haven’t mentioned the measures of the ingredients above, refer to the image below, that’s my thumb rule for measures.
