Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. In a saucepan heat the oil and add the onion and fry until translucent and softened. Add the green chilli, garlic and dry spices and mix well, cook for another 2 minutes.
  2. Add the mushrooms, seasoning and tomato puree. Mix well to combine. Cook gently for 3 minutes.
  3. Add the water (some juices will escape from the mushrooms). Don't overdo the water, you can always add more.
