Mushroom stir fry with garlic

OMG! from now I 'm big fan of mushrooms. This is the first time I made a recipe with mushrooms, I promise it came out splendid! I enjoyed the flavor of mushroom in garlic. My grand mother used to prepare this curry when ever I have been to her place she is no more now, I just memorized her with this curry. I skype daily with my parents, thanks to skype it makes me fell like I 'm at home though I'm thousands of miles away from them. My mom gave me directions while cooking this curry. Thnak you mom, love you.

Now coming to the recipe
Ingredients:
Mushrooms cleaned, washed and chopped to medium slices- 4cups (I took white button organic mushrooms)
Garlic finely chopped- 1ts
Onions- finely chopped-2cups

Green chillies-2
chopped cilantro-2t.s
dry coconut powder -2ts
Cumin seeds-1/2ts
Mustard seeds-1/2ts
Chana dal-1ts
Turmeric-Pinch
Salt to taste
Chili powder-1/2t.s
Red chili-1
vegetable oil-2ts











Directions:
Heat 2ts of oil in a non stick pan and add cumin seeds + mustard seeds+ red chili + chana dal and wait until they splutter. Add onions and fry them till they are well cooked under medium flame. Now, add turmeric, and cook until the raw flavor goes away. Add mushrooms and now close the pan with the lid and cook them under medium to simmer flame. They will become chips like and become crispy after few minutes, then add garlic, red chili powder, salt, coriander powder and cumin powder and stir them till the raw flavor of garlic vanishes, under medium flame in a open pan. Finally add cilantro and turn foo the stove  enjoy with rice/roti.
