Mushroom StirFry

1. You need not add water when cooking mushrooms as the mushroom will leave some water, it will get cooked in that water. I did not add extra water. If you want to add some water, add only 1/4 cup and cook well till the water is gone.
2. To make it more spicy, add another green chilli or red chilli powder. 

Until next time,
