Stuffed Grilled Mushrooms Tikka

Stuffed Grilled Mushrooms Tikka



What would you do when you don't like a particular ingredients, but your audiences wants you to do your best with it...:)
Yes Mushroom is something that I don't like Andy don't eat. Perking with them too is a challenge for me, but it's one of the favourites with hubby and few of his friends that were visiting us one fine day. Hubby encouraged me to make one of the best a Mushrooms that one could ever have, so I was all thrilled to present Mushrooms in an absolutely new Avtar.

Made these stuffed mushrooms with stuffing of Potato, roasted nuts, cheese and spices. Marinated them and then grilled them for an amazing smokey flavour and aroma.. And voila, everyone loved the Mushrooms so much that before I could pop Lin the 2nd batch in my oven, 1st batch was gone in few seconds. :) :D
