200 gm mushroom
1 onion chopped
1 1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/4 cup cashew nut paste
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste
1 pinch turmeric powder
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp jeera powder
1/2 tsp garam masala
1.Saute onion in 1 tbsp oil till onion turns light brown. Grind this cooked onion to a smooth paste and keep aside.
2.Heat oil in a pan and add ginger garlic paste and saute well.
3.Add the powders and saute till the raw smell is gone.
4.Throw in the mushrooms and saute for 5 minutes.
5.Add the onion paste and cashew paste.
