  2. Hi Hetal & Auja,

    Love all your recipes and have been following it for over a couple of years now.

    Do we need to boil the mushrooms first for this recipe or justjust use them direct from the pack?


  3. Hiya Hetal,

    I made this dish this noon and it came out yummy!! we rolled it up on tortilla, you gotta believe me, it was super yummy! I like all the veggie recipes from your website.

    The front page of your web site is also neatly designed. It looks professional & easy to access.


  4. Hi Hetal and Anuja,
    Your website and your recipes are simply amazing and it definitely adds a wonderful pinch of spice to my life ;). Anyways, I had a question, I hate mushrooms with passion, and i REALLLY want to try this, any other things i can try it with? eggs? chicken? i also looked in the comments and i really dont want to try it with just onions and bell peppers so what else can i make this with besides mushrooms? Thanks! love you guys!

    1. Hi Jay,

      hmmm…Mushrooms on Toast without the mushrooms? Lol!

      You could use eggs and make something like a egg bhurji. Cook the pepper and onions first and then add beaten and seasoned eggs in and allow them to cook while mixing.

  5. My mom and I love the recipes that you guys post! And we love making the food too! I had a question about mushrooms. How do you select mushrooms? I always want to buy mushrooms at the store, but I have no idea how to select them. If you could tell me how to select mushrooms, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

    1. Hi Rijutha,

      When buying mushrooms, pick ones that are very white with no bruises. Also, if you look under the cap, the ones that are sealed (you cannot see the black/brown ridges) are the freshest. Even if you see the ridges, its okay, but the lighter the color of the ridges, the fresher the mushroom.

  6. This has become my husband’s favorite sandwich! I put this mushroom filling along with some cheese and make toasted sandwiches. They are great to take on trips. The cheese makes it a bit more filling and helps to bind everything together.
    Thanks for the recipe girls!

  7. My husband and I used to eat cornflakes on most mornings as we were always in a hurry to get to office in the mornings. Thanks for sharing this easy and quick breakfast recipe. You have definitely added a pinch of spice to our monotonous breakfast menu :-). Thank you so much!

  8. Hi Hetal & Anuja,

    I`ve been a silent admirer of ur cooking videos since mid 2010. I`ve tried many of ur recipes and found them to be wonders. I have only one request. Can u pls put the kilogram or gram equivalent of lbs and oz. That`ll be of great help. Luv u guys.


  9. Love this! I like to add a little protein so I spread some all natural peanut butter on the toast first. The spice combined with the nutty flavor is wonderful!!!!

    Thanks for another great one! I love your website and your videos!

    Happy Diwali!

      1. I give out your website every chance I get. I bought several of the Healthy Indian Diet books and give them to friends and family. I really believe learning to cook Indian food has saved my life!

        Thank you so much!


  10. Hi Hetal & Anuja,

    Thanks for another great recepie.

    By the way, Hetal is not looking okey in this Video. Is everything all right at your end. You are looking sick or may be too tired or may be I am completely wrong.

  11. Hi Hetal & Anuja…

    Just wanted to say THANK YOU to both of u guys… amazing recipes…. dishes which i always thought are very difficult – u make them sooo easy… till now, whenever i tried ur recipes (which btw are lots 🙂 ) … they have really comeout very nice.

    Thanks n HAPPY DIWALI. wishing u guys a wonderful year ahead..


  12. If its the filling, same thing can be done with sprouts.

    This is good.

    In case if anybody interested in sandwich with good filling:
    Any kind of vegetable (carrots, potato, even green squash, beans, methi, spinach)

    fry onion, and add all the partially cooked vegetables above
    cook green the sprouts–> green mung, red mung, masoor, peas)
    and add it to the above mixture.

    Spices: chilli powder, jeera powder, garam masala
    + salt

    1. Good suggestions. Thanks.


      I came to see if there were any new simple sweet recipes for Diwali but looks like toast is your last video so far. It would have been nice to see some sweets during this time of the year. Anyway, happy Diwali to you both.

  14. Ladies, I’m delighted to find your fantastic website.
    I’ve always wondered HOW to use curry leaves and it is helpful to actually see you prepare food and explain
    Thanks for your work & efforts.

  15. Hi Hetal and Anuja
