  7. In case if some water has evapourated and the mushrooms are not soaked in the liquid, add some more water. The key to the sauce is to wait until the mushrooms release their own 'juice'. It will result into a more viscous and less clear/transparent sauce. You will notice that.
  8. Now add 8 tbsp of sour cream into the mushrooms and stir well. Cover with a lid and cook for 3-4 more minutes.
