Spicy Fried Mushrooms

You cant go wrong with mushrooms! 

Wash and dice 400g of button mushrooms. Add 2 tbsp of oil and 1 tbsp of ghee (it makes everything better!) into a pan. Add half an onion finely chopped and 4 cloves of garlic, also finely chopped and half a tsp of ginger. Stir together and add 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/4 tsp cinnamon(gives it some pizzazz), 1/2 tsp haldi powder, 1/2 tsp of curry powder and salt to taste. 

Fry well till onions and garlic is nicely cooked. Add one chopped up tomato and the mushrooms. Note: A lot of water comes out when you fry up mushrooms. Fry and fry and fry till most of the water has evaporated. Chop up a few sprigs of coriander and add that last. Mix well and eat with rice, chapatis, bread or plain. :)

(As you've probably noticed, I am totally loving my Dad's camera and food photography!)

Delicious! One of my favorites with roti. Made this today... except I replaced the "curry powder" with some combination of clove powder/garam masala/coriander powder...

Those are probably the masalas in the curry powder.
