Mushroom- Broccoli Stir Fry

2 pack weikfield button mushrooms
7-8 cloves garlic, slit and crushed
2 green chillies slit
2-3 small onions chopped into strings
2-3 tbsps oil
Salt to taste
Oregano and Basille for garnish

What next ? Clean the mushrooms and broccoli well. Chop mushrooms into 4 quarters and broccoli into tiny florets. Take oil in a wok, add the garlic and stir till pink, add onions and fry till lightly brown, add mushrooms and broccoli florets, slit green chillies and salt to taste. Cover wok and cook for 20 mins (or until done). Water is not usually required for cooking, since mushrooms give out water while cooking with salt. However you could add 3 tbsps water if you need a little bit of broth.

To serve ?
Garnish with oregano and basille

Most suitable with rice. It's a quickie :)
