If you can find fenugreek leaves, by all means, use them—their bitterness nicely counters the sweetness of the caramelized onions. This would be lovely with steak or chicken.
Seasoning with salt at the end of the cooking process may seem unconventional, but it actually works better in stir-fries. Salt encourages vegetables to break down and release water, and that is not the goal in these dishes.

Excellent!! I also added a ginger/garlic paste but I would recommend adding a good amount of fresh ginger/garlic after the fenugreek and before the mushrooms/onions. Also, I used fenugreek powder instead of leaves but I don't know if this matters too much.
This was the star of our meal! Served with homemade naan. I served all the stir-fry recipes featured with this one and this was the winner by far!
