We need to sauté it for 40-45 seconds on medium heat.

The ginger garlic and onion paste is nicely cooked.

Now we will add in 1/4 teaspoon red chilli powder and around one teaspoon tomato puree.

We have to cook it for 15-20 seconds.

Our paste is now ready.

Now we will add 3 tablespoon curd, 1 teaspoon five spice powder (garam masala), and we will cook it for one to one and a half minutes.

We can add some water to the mixture if required.

Once the mixture heats up, we can add in the mushrooms. Next, we add in salt to taste.
