  • Hey Maya: Fresh from cooking a mushroom dish, I was drawn to your recipe. Compared with the one I finished, this one looks truly promising. When does one add the garam masala? And, could I put in some turmeric, as well — just looking for your opinion with this. Thanks, Dido.

    • Hi Dido,
      Sorry for the delay in replying. Please add garam masala powder along with pepper powder once the dish is almost done.. and you can also add a pinch of turmeric powder, if you prefer.
