These are called Morel Mushrooms. A morel mushroom is an edible wild mushroom that occurs in different types and colour. It grows to a height of between 5.08 cm to 30.48 cm and is found in different habitats, though it thrives best in regions earlier infected by fire. However, though the morels are edible, they contain toxins that are destroyed in cooking and hence should not be consumed raw.
Morels are highly prized for their rich, earthy flavor, and also because their caps are hollow, which allows them to be stuffed. Dried morels are very flavorful, and they’re an excellent substitute for fresh in sauces and stews.
Each area of Gilgit Baltistan call morel mushrooms differently e.g Shurujun, kacholi, ghusi etc.
