1) I have used closed cup mushrooms, but you can use portobello mushrooms as well.
2) You can add either little sugar or tomato ketchup while making stuffing, to give it a little sweet and sour taste.
3) Wash the mushrooms in advance and keep them for drying for sometime. Otherwise they will absorb extra water.
4) You can add more vegetables of your choice in the stuffing like carrots, beans, peas etc.

  1. It would be really nice if you idiots would give the temperature in Feirnhiet or Celsius.

    1. Hi Fred,
      That is a valuable feedback, this will be incorporated in future recipes.

      I however would have expected a better usage of language, just how you expected some clarity on temp being F/C.

      I still approved this comment, since you took pain to give feedback and it is valuable.


    1. Thank you Anshu. Let me know how you get on 🙂
