First, you should decide which mushrooms youwill use: fresh or frozen. Frozen mushrooms are already soft on their own. Therefore, they need to cook quite a bit - no more than 3-4 minutes. Especially if they are thawed, before frying. Champignons frozen are kept in a pan for at least ten minutes, during which time they are cooked and even covered with a golden crust. First they must melt and release the water, then it is necessary to wait until all the water boils, and only then you can add oil.

If the mote is densely adhered, they can be rubbed slightly with a brush. After washing, before frying mushrooms, they must be dried, or get wet with a napkin. If this is not done, they will absorb the moisture and become watery.

Before frying, mushrooms can be cut into strips, cubes, divided into four parts or cut into pieces along the length. Prepared mushrooms are spread on a skillet with preheated oil. The oil can be any: vegetable, creamy and even olive. It is important to remember that champignons easily absorb fat, so do not add too much oil. Then mushrooms are fried in a pan, stirring occasionally for 4-5 minutes. During heat treatment, mushrooms lose a lot of moisture, and, therefore, greatly decrease in size. For the same reason, it is not worthwhile to put too many of them in the pan: a lot of water is allocated from them, and the mushrooms are not fried, they are stewed. To avoid this, they are fried in small portions on high heat.
