Mushrooms with a twist..but superquick

Achari Kumbh:

(Sanjeev Kapoor's recipe..pasted from his website)

This makes a great super duper quick to make and pretty tasty..just be careful with the salt...I wasn't and ended up with slightly salty version. Also, L. pointed out that mustard oil would have been nice in this dish, and now that I sat down to document, what do I notice? the recipe calls for mustard oil! This is what I'm married to folks!
