A Simple Oyster Mushroom Stir Fry and Sandwich

Fresh oyster mushrooms are hard to find in chennai, I accidentally came across a shop which was selling fresh oyster mushrooms. I was excited to see oyster mushrooms as they look so beautiful  Known to have many health benefits to fight cholesterol and cancer I think they deserve to be included in our diet at a regular basis.

The sandwich was very delightful to have with the soft mushroom filling and complimented very well with the flavors. This is a healthy low fat sandwich, you could also have it like a stir fry if you don't want to have it with the bread.


  • 1 cup sliced oyster mushroom
  • 4 bread slices
  • 2 tbsp sliced onions
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1/4 tsp chopped garlic 
  • 1/2 tsp mustard sauce
  • 1/2 tsp tomato ketchup
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt to taste
Heat oil in pan, add chopped garlic and mushrooms and fry till mushroom gets tender.
Add oregano, chilli flakes, salt and mix nicely, then add the chopped onions and stir mildly.

Toast the bread in the same pan and spread the prepared mixture on the bread slice, add some mustard sauce , tomato sauce and cover with the other bread slice. And press mildly, flip over and toast till it has a golden crust.

Serve warm.


1.In place of raw onions you can use caramelized onion.
2.You could spread mayonnaise and top it with the mushroom filling or use a cheese slice too with the filling
3.You could add salad leaves, fresh tomatoes, pickles jaleponos to the filling
