  • Enriched the mixture with finely chopped pieces of (3 medium) tomatoes,
  • Flavoured the mixture with finely chopped pieces of a Hyderabadi chilli,
  • Boosted the mixture with chopped pieces of button mushrooms (200 gm),
  • Sprinkled the mixture with (1 teaspoon) of salt and (less than half a teaspoon) of turmeric powder,
