Rinse the pearl barley well, not once or twice. I rinsed it about 10 times. The better the barley is rinsed, the clearer your soup will be. Also, if you want to reduce the cooking time of the barley, you can soak it overnight, then it will cook quickly. After rinsing the pearl barley, pour it into a saucepan and pour in 2.5 liters of water, and again, if you want to reduce the cooking time, pour boiling water over the barley. Do not add salt to the barley at this stage, it will cook faster without it. Cook the barley until done, about 40 minutes.

While the pearl barley is cooking, let's prepare the mushrooms and onions. Finely chop the onions, and wash and slice the mushrooms into small slices or however you prefer, it doesn't matter. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and pour vegetable oil into it, heat it up, add the mushrooms and onions, season with salt, pepper, and curry, and fry, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
