Recipe for Mushroom Pallipalayam. Kongunadu Pallipalayam style mushroom recipe made with Indian shallots, country garlic, Guntur chillies and coconut. Recipe with video.
This is my vegan take on the classic Kongunadu special Pallipalayam Chicken. I have used coconut oil for making this recipe. The aroma of curry leaves and red chillies when it hits the hot coconut oil is just divine and filled with lots of nostalgia. Those are the smells of my childhood.
Lot of deseeded and chopped dried red chillies is used for Pallipalayam mushrooms. Deseeding the chillies will give the flavour sans the heat. All the spiciness is in the seeds. I have used the Guntur variety of chillies.
Indian shallots (sambar onions) is needed for making this recipe. If you do not have shallots, regular onions can be used. But I recommend you to use shallots as it works very well for this recipe.
