Wild Mushrooms

Mushrooms are found on almost every continent and due to the rich flora of Kerala they usually flourish unattended in the Western Ghats. Wild mushrooms are used for cooking various dishes from curries to dry starters and are relished by vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. The demand for mushrooms is so high that they are now commercially grown in various parts of the state.

    • Those small mushrooms pictured here are gathered by the indigenous communities inside the Periyar Tiger Reserve. They’re very nutritious. I believe they only grow wild. As far as we know the mushrooms being cultivated, at least here in Kerala, are oysters, milky and button.
