It’s a versatile dish that can be enjoyed as a side or as a main course. The best part is that it’s quick and easy to make, so it’s perfect for busy weeknights or lazy weekends.


  • 1 pound of fresh mushrooms (button or cremini)
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon of red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon of garam masala
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of oil
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish


  1. Start by cleaning the mushrooms and slicing them into even pieces.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan and add the cumin seeds. Let them sizzle for a few seconds.
  3. Add the sliced onions and sauté until they turn golden brown.
  4. Toss in the minced garlic and sauté for another minute until it becomes fragrant.
  5. Now, add the sliced mushrooms to the pan and give everything a good stir.
  6. Sprinkle the turmeric powder, red chili powder, garam masala, and salt. Mix well to ensure the mushrooms are coated evenly with the spices.
