Seafood Mushroom is known by a variety of names such as golden needle mushroom, enoki mushrooms, winter mushrooms etc. They are widely used in Asian Cuisine as a garnish and in soups. The cultivated mushrooms are white in colour as it is not exposed to sunlight but the wild ones are usually brown or dark coloured.
The green Chilli Seafood Mushroom Fry recipe is very simple to make since it requires very light cooking so as to retain its delicate flavour and the crispy texture. My Amma used to soak the mushrooms in a mix made with turmeric powder and salt to make sure they are not poisonous.
