Most people don't like mushrooms, but I love them. Last night, my friend Robbi and her friend Phil called me over for Mushroom Masala. The three of us cut up peppers, mushrooms, garlic, onions, tomatoes, tofu, and basil from her garden and she did the rest. It was delicious and great karma for the stomach. She told me the secret is to improvise the recipe.
2 onion (pyaj) cut
1/2 kg mushrooms (goochi)
1 tsp garlic paste
salt (namak) to taste
1 tomato (tamatar) cut
1/2 tsp red chilli (lal mirch) powder
3 tblsp oil
1/2 tsp garam masala
1 tblsp fresh corriander, cut
1/2 tsp turmeric (haldi) powder
How to make mushroom masala:
