Devil Mushroom:

Today’s guest post is from Karkuzhali Praveen, author and blogger at

We met through a social media forum and I approached her for a guest post, she immediately accepted and had sent me this recipe. She has been passionately cooking and experimenting in her kitchen since her teens and she has written on several topics like kolam/relationships/festivals and a lot more. She is a very versatile person and it was really that beautiful tamil name of herself and her blog attracted me to get into her space. Thank you, dear. Wishing you a great blogging journey ahead.


Over to Karkuzhali!

Few months before while Kalyani asking me for a guest post, I was glad to share a recipe. But some how I was not able to do immediately. Better late than never, So now I come up with a recipe called Devil mushroom.Mush room is one of our family’s favourite. We like mushroom recipes in any form. This recipe is so simple to make and less time consuming but tastes great and it doesn’t call for the tomatoes, yes., instead, it uses tomato ketchup, which gives a different taste to the curry. And thank you so much Kalyani for the opportunity. OK, without any further delay, let’s move on to the recipe.


  •  250 grams button mushrooms
  •  ½ teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1 green chilli
  • ½ teaspoon fennel seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
  • 1 medium sized onion
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • Few coriander leaves
