You can use any onion in the recipe: shallot or more tender leek. After cleaning and washing it under running water, cutting it, send it to fry in vegetable oil in a pan.
By the time the onion turns golden, the mushrooms will be ready. Gently transfer them to the onion with a slotted spoon.
Season with salt and mix.
Melt some butter in another bowl. If you like garlic, you can peel it and add it.
Wash and cut the tomatoes, add them to the garlic with oil.
Once the tomatoes turn into tomato puree, mix them with flour and breadcrumbs.
Add pepper, ginger, salt, paprika.
Combine the mushrooms and tomato sauce without turning off the heat.
Add lemon juice, it will give the dish a sour note. Mix and add grated cheese.
Cover the pan with a lid. Let the cheese melt for a few minutes. Turn off the stove.
Sprinkle the finished salad with chopped dill and you can at once serve it to the table!
