Shiitake mushrooms are low in calories and offer good amounts of fibre. Quite versatile in the kitchen, they go best with stir-fires and lend a deep umami flavour and a smoky aroma.
All you need to do is soak them in lukewarm water for 30 minutes and they're ready for your pan! Store them in a cool, dry place and they can last up to a whole year.
Shroomery is an urban mushroom farm located just outside Gurgaon. What started off as an experiment to simply grow some shrooms in our backyard, is now a round the year mushroom farm that supplies different kinds of gourmet mushrooms to homes and restaurants in Delhi NCR. With the help of both temperature-controlled and seasonal grow rooms, we are constantly experimenting with cultivation techniques to provide you with a wide array of high-quality gourmet mushrooms.
Mushrooms are typically grown on agricultural waste such as wheat or paddy straw, sawdust, etc. The mushroom seed gets its nutrition from this waste, and then when given the right environmental conditions (low temperature, high humidity) leads to a beautiful bounty of mushrooms!
