This is a tasty appetizer which is easy to make. The stuffing can be changed with any of your favorite ingredients like peppers(capsicum), cabbage, potatos etc., I got the recipe from my friend and my special thanks to her. you may prepare this few hours ahead and reheat in the oven before serving

How to make:

Work with mushrooms:

1. Wash the mushrooms a couple of times to remove the mud completely.

2. Remove the stem of the mushrooms which will leave the hollow part inside. Keep the whole hollow part aside

3. Finely chop the stem part of the mushroom

Making the stuffing:

1. Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. Then add chopped onions and garlic.

2. After its sauted add the chopped mushroom stems. We can add other vegetables also at this time

3. Now add the red chilli powder, a little pepper and salt.

4. cook till its done. we may not need water as mushroom tends to leave out some

Final part:

1. Preheat the oven at 350F

2. Take the whole mushrooms and fill the prepared stuffing inside them

3. Assemble the mushrooms in an oven-safe vessel with the open side facing upwards

4. Now sprinkle the shredded cheese on top and keep inside the oven
