Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add the whole spices, coriander stems, whole garlic, quartered onions and tomatoes; along with grated ginger.

Next, add the chilli powder, turmeric and about 2 cups of water. Cook over medium flame for 20 minutes.

Once cooked, carefully open the pressure cooker and mash the stew so the flavours begin to homogenise. Check for the garlic's doneness and cook further until they are mushy.

Add in the green peas followed by the quartered hand-torn lion's mane mushroom and salt; stew till the mushrooms are soft and juicy and the peas are soft to the touch.

Now add in the powdered spices followed by split chillies and kasuri methi. Cook for 1-2 minutes and serve hot, garnished with ginger juliennes and fresh coriander leaves.

Enjoy with phulka or hot rice.
