KEY POINTS TO CONSIDER:

  • Make sure that the oil must be used in an appropriate amount. Too much oil will soak them up and too less will not make them crispy.
  • Do not use black pepper too much.
  • Make sure you slice your mushrooms into pieces and then put it in the vessel. Putting mushrooms directly in the vessel will reduce the crispiness.
