Milky mushroom or Calocybe indica is an Indian mushroom which is not only delicious and nutritious, but also known to have medicinal benefits. Multiple studies have proven that this mushrooms strengthens and regulate the immune system thus making it a strong defense against infections as well as asthma and other allergies. It also has antibiotic, anti-tumor, anti-cancer and antioxidant properties.
Milky Mushroom has excellent texture and a robust flavor. It can be cooked in a variety of dishes. Wash, slice, boil for five minutes, drain and cook with any dish. Cook to omelet, pasta, pizza, stir-fry and curry. Even traditional recipes like adobo, pansit, lumpia, chopsuey, sisig, papaitan, kare-kare, menudo, pusit, laing, dinuguan and bopis can be made healthier with the addition of milky mushroom.
I saw the mushroom and got the brochure during the BAR anniversary exhibit.
