Salt to taste

Oil - 4tbsp

Method:

Grind together half of the onions,ginger and garlic into a fine paste.

In a pan heat the oil.When hot enough,add the cumin seeds.When they become slightly brown,add the reamaining chopped onions.When they become translucent,add the paste and fry till the raw smell goes.

Then add the tomatoes and green chillies.When the tomatoes are slightly mushy,add the spice powder one by one and fry for sometime.

Then add the quartered mushrooms and saute till they slightly wilt.Add the required maount of salt and 1/2 cup of water.Close with a lid and simmer for 5 minutes and allow the mushrooms to get cooked well and blend with the masala.
