Indian Spiced Sautéed Mushrooms and Green Onions

This quick, satisfying sauté combines cremini mushrooms with green chili, fresh ginger, cumin, and deggi mirch (an Indian chili powder blend) for a spicy, earthy, and fragrant dish with freshness from chopped tomatoes. A little lemon juice adds bright acidity to augment the stir fry, which works equally well as a side dish or a vegan main.

  1. 1Trim the mushroom stems flush to the caps (discard the stems). Quarter the mushrooms and clean them in a large bowl of water. Transfer them to a colander.
  2. 2In a wok or kadai, heat the oil over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Add the cumin seeds and let them crackle. Add the onion and cook until soft and just beginning to brown, about 3 minutes. Stir in the ginger, green chili, tomatoes, turmeric, and deggi mirch. Cook, stirring occasionally, to soften the tomatoes, about 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms and 1 teaspoon of the salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add the green onions, lemon juice, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and serve.
