Mushroom omelette recipe – Healthy, delicious, quick snack & breakfast recipe. It can also be enjoyed with bread, rice, roti or paratha. I had always wondered if egg & mushrooms together in a dish would taste good. Since it is uncommon to cook them together in the Indian cuisine, I had never tried this combination in the past. During our visits to restaurants, I did eat mushrooms with chicken in a pizza, soups, pasta a lot many times and loved them.
I have been trying mushroom recipes with eggs and chicken at home, hopefully will be able to share a few good ones. This mushroom omelette recipe is a must try for a quick breakfast if you like mushrooms. They both go well together, are compatible and even can be served to young kids.
