Mushrooms Thinly sliced- 1 1/2 cup

Onion- 1  small sized
Garlic- 3-4 pods
Ginger chopped- 1 tsp
Carrot chopped- 1/2 cup
Bell pepper- 1/2 cup

Lemon juice- 1 tsp
Garam masala- 1 tsp
Pepper -1/2 tsp



Clean and cut mushrooms into thin slices. Heat  one tsp of oil in a pan and add ginger and garlic and saute for a minute followed by onions and stir fry till onion changes color. 
Add carrots and bell pepper and stir fry till it is soft and crispy.
Stir fry mushroom,and sprinkle pepper powder and salt to taste and saute for three minutes.
 Add garam masala, rice and lemon juice and fry for another minute. Serve warm with any spicy side dish of your choice.
