Ingredients
1 cup of mushrooms
4 teaspoons mustard or vegetable oil
1 medium onion
2 garlic cloves
2.5 cm piece of ginger
1/2 teaspoon chili (optional)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon fenugreek seed
salt to taste

Process
Wash the mushrooms 2 or 3 times.  Break into small pieces by hand.  Mix turmeric rubbing with the hands and allow to stand for at least 10 minutes.  

Heat the oil and fry the fenugreek seeds till they jump and become brown.  Add the mushrooms after squeezing out the turmeric.  Add salt and fry again.  Add the ground spices and some water so as to let it become a paste.  Cook with a little more quantity of water if needed.

Serve hot and dry.
