Sprinkle the spices – oregano, pepper, red chili powder and salt. Cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Mushrooms and tomatoes cook in their own juices – a reason why this curry can be made effortlessly with very little oil.

Cook till the sauce has thickened; this will take about 7-8 minutes.
