Notes

  1. If you can't get hold of black salt (kala namak) then you can just use regular salt. But black salt is highly recommended.
  2. We used large flat brown mushrooms, but you can switch this for cremini mushrooms (also called portobellini mushrooms, baby bella) or even white button mushrooms.
  3. Keep leftovers stored in the fridge and enjoy within a few days. You can reheat it in the microwave.
