Add cumin, coriander, cayenne, curry powder and salt to taste.

Then transfer the mushrooms and saute with the rest for about 5 min’s or so. For the sauce, add cilantro, basil and coconut milk in a blender and blend well. Add salt to taste. Transfer the sauce to the pan and cook for 2 min’s under a low flame.

For the garnish, cut the ginger into thin strips length wise and saute with some honey or sugar.
