Mushroom Sandwich

Mushroom Sandwich is a very simple, tasty and healthy sandwich. I come from a household where Bread is not our staple food so are the mushrooms. But my never ending love for mushroom ends up in the shopping trolley and also bread comes in handy when you are running out of time or mood to cook.

So, it’s always a challenge for me to find that recipe which will be easy, simple as well as healthy. When I came across this simple recipe, I gave it a try and it became a regular part of my cooking menu. Hope you like it too ☺!

I have used button mushrooms but feel free to use any mushroom of your choice.

Serves: 2


Mushroom: 300 g
Onion: 1 big
Garlic: 9 cloves
Oil: 1 tbsp
Pepper Powder: ½ tsp or as required
Cumin Powder: 1.5 tsp
Salt: as required
Chopped Coriander leaves: 2 tbsp
Bread: as required
Butter: as required

To Mix:

Milk: ½ cup
Corn flour: 3 tsp


Clean the mushrooms with a damp cloth and then wash in fresh water. Chop them into small pieces and keep it aside.

Finely chop garlic and onions. 

Mix the corn flour and milk without lumps and keep it aside.


In a kadai, add oil and finely chopped onions. 

Once the onions become translucent, add garlic and fry for a couple of minutes until the raw smell goes.

Add the chopped mushrooms, cumin powder, pepper powder and required salt. Saute until the mushroom oozes out water. 

Reduce the flame and cook with a closed lid. You can also sprinkle water if required (I did not since the water from the mushrooms were sufficient)

Now add the milk-corn flour mixture and stir well without lumps. If required add little extra milk or water. 

Consistency should be thick and dry so that it will be easy to stuff in the bread. Adjust accordingly!

Garnish with coriander leaves.

Quick Peek:

Now, butter the bread and add the required stuffing and toast to make delicious sandwiches.

Simple isn’t it!


  • Adjust pepper powder according to your taste.
  • You can add grated paneer with the stuffing and make it more nutritious. 
  • You can also serve as a side dish for chappatis
