Mushroom Fry (Chinese Style)




Sorry guys,.... I know..... iam blogging after a long gap. The reason is that I was busy with some chocolate orders and was trying my hand on some cake toppers with fondant. Once iam comfortable with it, I would start taking orders for Birthday cakes, Anniversary cakes or any type of cakes. Though I have done many cakes using buttercream, I am putting my baby steps into the vast world of fondant decorations. Its really fun to mold out different figures using the fondant. Iam in love with it now :)

Don't worry guys, I will not stop blogging...it will go on, but may be not as regular as I used to write earlier. Though cooking is my passion, I love baking the most. So iam slightly inclined to baking. If I start about this topic, it will go on....so coming over to this recipe...




We all love mushrooms a lot....actually many of you might also like it, right? The main problem I face with mushrooms, is the cleaning part. While cleaning them, I make it double sure that it is cleaned properly. So it takes lot of my time. Still I love to cook with it. This time it is a Fried Chinese dish iam making with this mushroom. I must say, it tastes heavenly. Try it out and let me know...




Ingredients

10 - 15 Button Mushrooms
Oil for frying

For making batter:

3 tbsp. Maida/All purpose flour
1 tbsp. Cornflour
Salt to taste
1/4 tsp Black pepper powder
Water as required

For making Sauce:

1 Onion (finely chopped)
1 tbsp. Garlic (finely chopped)
2 Stalks Spring Onion (finely chopped)
1 tsp Tomato Ketchup
1 tsp Red chilli sauce
1 tbsp. Kashmiri Red chilli powder
1/2 tsp Soy Sauce
1 tsp Vinegar
1/4 tsp Black pepper powder
Salt to taste
1 tbsp. Oil



Method

  • Clean the mushrooms and cut each one of them into half. Keep aside.
  • Mix maida, cornflour, salt and black pepper powder in a bowl. Add little water to make a batter. Mix well to remove all the lumps. The batter should be neither too thin nor too thick.
  • Heat oil in a kadai. When it is medium hot, dip each mushroom pieces in the batter and put them in the oil. Let it simmer till all the sides are golden brown colour.
  • Once done, transfer them onto a tissue paper. Keep aside.
  • Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a kadai. Add onion and the bulbs of spring onion. Saute till translucent. Now add garlic and saute for a minute or till the raw smell goes off.
  • Add tomato ketchup, soy sauce, red chilli sauce, Kashmiri red chilli powder, vinegar, black pepper powder and salt. Mix well and add 1/4 cup water. Let it boil for 1 minute.
  • Now add the fried mushrooms and toss well so that each one of them is nicely coated with the sauce.
  • Adjust salt if needed. Take off from heat and garnish with the spring onion greens.
  • Serve it hot as a starter or with Fried Rice or Chinese noodles.





* I usually take the quantity of the ingredients as per my taste. So you can always adjust the sauces and spices as per your taste*
