I must tell you that all mushrooms are not edible. Some of them are highly poisonous and resemble the edible mushrooms. Do not select the mushrooms yourself from the woods unless you know about them and have proper training. Mushrooms absorb the material they grow in, and this can prove to be fatal as some of them pick and absorb heavy and contagious metals.
Do not trust any vendor when buying mushrooms. Only visit the reputed shops that you trust. A single inedible mushroom can poison the whole dish. Also, avoid consuming discolored mushrooms.
