  • Oven


  • 400 gram Button mushroom
  • 1 cup Paneer (grated)
  • ½ tsp Pepper powder
  • 2 tsp Mixed herb
  • 1 tsp Chili flake
  • Salt as needed
  • Olive oil for greasing


  • First wash and clean all the button mushrooms.
  • Gently break the stalk of each mushroom and keep aside the stalks to use in any other mushroom based recipe.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven at 180 deg C and grease a baking tray with olive oil.
  • Then in a bowl take all the grated paneer along with salt, mixed herbs, chili flakes and pepper powder.
  • Mix well, the stuffing is ready.
  • Now pick one mushroom cap and fill the cavity of the cap with the stuffing.
  • Place the stuffed mushroom caps over the greased baking tray.
  • Similarly make some more stuffed mushroom and place over the tray keeping space in between.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes or till the mushrooms shrink a bit in size and water starts to release.
  • Take out from the oven and serve hot with some ketchup or any desired dip !


  • Don't keep the mushroom after baking without serving. Because as the mushroom cools down, it becomes too soft and soggy.
  • I have used the white button mushrooms here. Cremini mushrooms are also perfect for this recipe.
  • Always pick fairly large mushrooms so that, those cavities can be easily stuffed.
  • Alter the spices and herbs as desired.
  • Along with paneer, those stalks can be used as stuffing. If using the stalks, then finely chopped them first and saute in a pan with little oil till completely all the water released. Then mix with paneer mixture and use as stuffing.
  • Here I have not added those stalks, rather I keep that to use in some other mushroom-based dish.
  • Some grated cheese can be topped on each stuffed mushroom just before baking.
