The Final Recipe of Ají de No Gallina

I want you to know how to prepare this dish so that it has the traditional flavor that characterizes it and that you can share it with all your loved ones. This recipe will take you to it so you just have to put it into practice step by step, remember that if you have any questions you can write it at the bottom of the recipe in the comments I will be attentive to answer you by this means.

The Ají de No Gallina is already a tradition in Namasté and a favorite of many of our guests. Our Peruvian cuisine is a pride, let's learn to share it with love.

The mushrooms (oyster mushrooms) have this ideal presentation that allows them to be worked especially for this dish. It comes in neutral or pink presentation but they are equally useful in this recipe.

Ingredients (4 people)


  • 3 tablespoons of sunflower oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1/2 cup yellow pepper paste
  • 1/4 of mushrooms chopped into strips or frayed
  • 100 grams of bread or biscuit blended with a cup of water
  • 2 cups of plant-based cashew milk
  • Salt, pepper to taste and a pinch of toothpick (turmeric)


1 In a pot, heat the oil, place the onion and brown it. Then add the yellow pepper, brown it for two more minutes and add the seasonings.

2 Place the frayed mushrooms in the dressing and brown for three minutes, add the blended bread or biscuit and cook until set (thickened).

3 Add the salt, milk and cook for three minutes until it has thickened again.

4 Serve accompanied by rice and potatoes, decorate with olives.

You only need to carry out these 4 steps to achieve the traditional Ají de No Gallina, I wish you the best.
