3. Add coconut cream and kaffir leaves,stir and cook for another 1 minute on a low heat then add Kerisik (roasted coconut paste) and asam keping,stir and continue to cook until sauce thickens for another 10 – 15 minutes

A tip is to not wash your mushrooms because they tend to soak up a lot of water. So just brush your mushroom with a clean wet cloth or a brush to remove any dirt.
