  • 250 grams mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, pureed
  • 2 green chilies, slit lengthwise
  • 1 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons oil

  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala

  1. Heat oil in a pan or kadai over medium heat. Add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Allow them to splutter.
  2. Add the bay leaf, cloves, cinnamon stick, and cardamom pods to the pan. Sauté for a few seconds until they release their aroma.
