How do you prepare mushroom pepper fry? I wanted it to be crispy, but the mushroom itself was generating lot of water. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Mushrooms typically release water if they are overcooked and also if salt is added too early in the cooking process.

When cooking mushrooms, cook them on a relatively high heat until they have just developed some colour. at the end of the cooking process add your seasoning.

also- don't crowd them. put them in your hot pan, in a single layer, with space inbetween the mushrooms.

let them sit a while, then stir them up a bit, then let them sit a while, then stir a bit.
