"Chicken" Mushroom !!!!

SORRY NO CHICKEN on my recipe ! Only mushroom and bread ! You can't find any mushroom??? OK OK...let me show you.

Here's the mushroom I am using. It's called abalone mushroom but it looks more like our local wild mushroom called "chicken" mushroom or 'gai yoke gu'. Those wild mushroom can be easily found along the road side after raining at least for a few days. And here's the tips if you want to have the chicken like texture  mushroom. Never ever slice it with knife ! What I did here was just tearing them into pieces by hand.

It will look like this. And here's the recipe as follow.

Ingredients :
2-3 pcs  abalone mushroom
1 tbsp  chopped garlic
1 tbsp  chopped ginger
a few bird eye chilies, chopped
salt & pepper to taste

# Thickening :  1 tspn  tapioca starch + 2 tbsp water
# Half of Dukkah Bread recipe, sliced & toasted with butter.

Method :
(1)  preheat pan with 2-3 tbsp cooking oil.
(2)  stir in ginger & garlic and saute till fragrant.
(3)  next add in chilies, salt, pepper & mushroom, let them cook over high heat for a couple of minutes or till mushroom turned soft / tender.
(4)  finally off the heat, then stir in thickening and mix well.

You can either serve this as side dish or bruschetta or maybe burger. So, what do you think!? This dish is certainly taking hubby back to his childhood days cause his family loves mushrooms picking
I'm sending this to Shaz & Suresh @ Muhibbah Malaysia Monday.
