Cheesy Garlic Mushroom Balls – How to Make Cheese Garlic Mushroom at Home

Cheesy Garlic Mushroom Balls

I got a motivation to make Cheesy Garlic Mushroom Balls, when I had it for the first time in one of the Restaurant Barley and Grapes Cafe in Banglore. That was the day when i decided to make this recipe at home and sharing it with my readers. Though when I prepared this for the first time it  didn’t came out well,  but then I didn’t loose hope and i tried to make it again. To begin with I asked the chef at the Restaurant on the ingredients for the recipe.  With that information and the little bit of my creativity I made this recipe which eventually turned out to be a real good one.

Ingredients :-

  • Button mushrooms – 10 (cleaned , stems separated from the caps)
  • Small onion- 4 (minced)
  • Butter – 1 tbsp
  • Garlic – 6-7 clove (minced)
  • Salt – as per the taste
  • Pepper – as per the taste
  • Coriander leaves – 1 Tbsp (finely chopped)
  • Green chilies – 1-3 (finely chopped)
  • Cottage cheese – ½ cup
  • Cheese – 2 cups
  • Corn flour – 1½ tbsp
  • Refined flour – 2 tbsp
  • Water – 1 cup or (as per required)
  • Vegetable oil – to deep fry

Method :-

  • Finely chop the mushroom stems.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a small frying pan over medium-high heat.
  • Saute the chopped mushroom stems and the onions for about 4-5 minutes, stirring in between.
  • Now add the garlic and sprinkle pepper and salt as per your taste.
  • Mix well and saute for about 2 to 3 more minutes.
  • Switch off the gas.
  • Add the coriander leaves and cottage cheese and mix well.
  • Boil the mushrooms in hot water for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Let it cool down.
  • Now stuff each mushroom with the mixture and keep aside.
  • Mix cheese and chopped green chilies together and make 10 small ball of the mixture.
  • Take one ball in your hand and press it onto your palms to make a small round shape.
  • Place mushroom in the centre and cover the stuffed mushroom with the cheese mixture.
  • Now the same procedure has to be followed for all the 10 mushrooms.
  • Now make a thick smooth paste of corn flour and refined flour by adding 1 cup of water.
  • Ensure that the flour paste should be little thick, so that the cheese coating over the mushrooms should not spill out in a frying pan while deep frying.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan.
  • Dip each mushroom ball one by one in the flour paste and fry the balls.
  • Serve hot with garlic sauce or tomato sauce.
