Stir fried mushroom and bell peppers with mixed herbs

Who doesn’t like the subtle aroma of mixed Italian herbs especially when you are only interested to eat something which is flavorsome? I just love mixing herbs in dishes which are stir fried and served mostly as starters. The best part of herbs is they don’t overpower the real flavors of the main ingredients like vegetables or chicken or any other kind of meat. In fact herbs enhance the taste of any dish by adding their sheer magic to it.

Bell peppers and mushroom is a really good combination I ever came across in my entire cooking journey so far. So let’s begin with the recipe and see how you can also prepare the same and share the joy with others.

After five minutes, open the skillet and serve the dish but yes before serving don’t forget to adding dash of lime juice and garnishing the dish with coriander leaves.
