Onions  – 3-4 cubed

Thick or hung curd – 2 tablespoon

Garlic paste  – 1 teaspoon

Ginger paste  – 1 teaspoon

Red chilli powder  – 1 teaspoon or as much your spice tolerance

Black pepper powder  – 1 teaspoon

Cumin powder  – 1 teaspoon

Garam masala powder  – 1/4 teaspoon optional

Turmeric powder  – 1/4 teaspoon

Salt to taste

Mustard oil  – 1 tablespoon

Method

Clean and wash the mushrooms. If you have small mushrooms keep whole but if large make  them half.

Mix ginger garlic paste, salt,  all the spices and oil in the well beaten curd.

Marinate mushrooms, capsicum and onions in this curd mixture for 1/2 to 1 hour in a microwave safe bowl.

Now microwave them for 6-8 minutes on full power. Time depends on oven. Check and cook in microwave for 2 minutes more if require.

Mushrooms release water. So I dried up the mushrooms in a pan on high flame.

When the mushrooms completely done in microwave check it. If you like pour the mushrooms in a pan and dried up on full flame.

Garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Serve as a side dish with roti/Indiana flat bread, naan, paratha or toasted bread.
