How to make Mushroom Sauce
Making Mushroom Sauce
As a child I was never very fond of mushrooms. As I grew up I developed a taste for them. Today I enjoy them both as a snack and as part of the main meal.
For this particular recipe these are the ingredients you will need.
About 150 grams of Mushrooms - finely chopped
3 tablespoons of Butter
2 tablespoons heaped Cornflour
About 300 ml of milk or one large cup
Some salt, pepper and mustard powder to taste
About half a teaspoon of lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 green chillies - de seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons thin cream
2 cubes cheese - grated.
Now that you have assembled all these ingredients lets get cooking.
First heat the butter in a heavy bottomed pan. Add in the chopped mushrooms and cook till they are tender. Add the cornflour now and stir till light brown.
Lower the heat and add milk slowly. Make sure that no lumps form. Now boil till the sauce begins to thicken. When you feel it is the right consistency take off the heat.
Add salt, pepper and mustard powder to taste. Stir in the lemon juice and chopped parsley. Mix in the cream and green chillies. Your mushroom sauce is now ready to eat.
For garnishing you can save some browned mushrooms and toss them in just before you serve the sauce.
