Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Measure the spices and place them right next to the stove in separate piles.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat for 3 minutes.
  3. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes.
  4. Add the ginger, garlic, and chilies, and cook for 2 more minutes.
  5. Add the turmeric, mushrooms, and salt.
  6. Cook, stirring, until all the moisture evaporates and the mushrooms begin to fry (about 15 minutes).
  7. Lower the heat, sprinkle on the cumin seeds and the lemon juice, mix well, and continue cooking until the mushrooms absorb the lemon juice and look fried (about 5 minutes).
  8. Turn off the heat and serve warm, at room temperature, or cold, sprinkled with chopped fresh coriander.
  9. Enjoy!

Yummmmm! The spices in this recipe are exellent!! I guess I'm the opposite of Charishma because I added extra chilies for even more of a kick. Had these warm, but will try them cold next time... if I can keep myself from eating it long enough :^)

Mushroom lovers enjoy this, but I cant have too spicy food or I'll end up crying at the table. LOL..So, I do tone down the spice, but whenever I make this, it's well enjoyed:)

This dish does not need six tablespoons of lemon, it killed every other flavour, I will try one, maybe two next time. The image shows a complete green chilli but you are instructed to mince the chillis
