  1. Hi,

    Instead of deep fry can i do it oven?

    • in oven, the batter coating will become chewy. if you plan to roast in oven, then just mix the mushrooms with black pepper powder, salt and a bit of oil. then roast in oven till done.

  2. I followed the recipe with white button mushrooms and as I fired them they got sticky and stuck a bit to the pan as well. The taste turned out fine but I didn’t get that crispy and crunchy texture (an usual texture from the take outs). Please tell me what should I do to get that crisp??
    Thanks.

    • mani, when frying batter coated veggies, always use a thick bottomed kadai or pan which is well seasoned. meaning the same pan or kadai has been used for frying before. if the kadai or pan is not frequently used for frying, then the batter sticks to the pan. this also happens when frying snacks like pakoras or vada. also sometimes due to the quality of pan, especially poor quality non stick pans, the batter sticks while frying. fry at medium flame too. its due to the sticking of the batter, that the mushrooms have not become crisp and crunchy.

  5. Mam can you please post the recipe of chinese chana chilli recipe

  6. You are a food magician. Can we pan-fry the mushrooms like you did for baby corns or they have to be deep fried only for the great taste. I do not wish to compromise on the taste.

    • thanks neha. of course you can pan fry the mushrooms. they won’t be that crisp as deep fried ones but will be healthy.

      • Can i fry the mushrooms and keep aside for a few hours and then later pan fry them with onion and soy sauce?

        • yes you can do this neha.
