Chef Tips:

  1. You can make these tikka’s in the oven as well.
  2. You may use normal vegetable oil instead of olive oil.
  3. Use a non-stick pan or tawa, you will require less oil to pour.
  4. Here tandoori masala plays a very important role, that’s why it is the prime ingredient.
  5. Try to use fresh mushrooms or if they are not just bought, then wash and clean them in lukewarm water or you may need to boil them.
  6. Place few tikka’s on the tawa and keep a good distance. Its because you need to flip them many times until cooked.
