  • 1 Lb Button/Oyster Mushroom
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • ½ Cup Corn Flour
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 tsp crushed fresh pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for frying
  • Water for mixing the batter


How to Make Crackling Mushrooms- Crispy Fried

  1. One would require two bowls. In one mix the flour, corn flour, baking powder, salt and pepper thoroughly into a batter. Pour the breadcrumbs in the other bowl. Meanwhile, fill a deep and heavy bottomed skillet with the frying oil.

  2. Dip the mushrooms into the batter. let any excess batter drip off and then roll them in the breadcrumbs until they're dry to the touch. See to that the mushrooms are coated with the breadcrumbs from all sides, repeat for all the mushrooms.

  3. Drop the breadcrumb-coated mushrooms in the skillet one by one. use tongs or deep-frying tempura tongs to avoid burning yourself. Allow them to deep fry until they are a golden brown, turning over to make sure they fry from all sides.

  4. Remove the mushrooms with tongs or deep-frying tempura tongs and allow them to drain on a paper towel. Serve right away. Crispy from outside but moist from inside.

Recipe Notes

  • Make sure when you dip the mushroom in the batter, the excess batter should drip and then roll it in breadcrumbs and fry.
  • Every recipe recommends for panko breadcrumbs, but here the normal bought of bakery also works fine 😊.
  • Don't overcrowd the pan allow them enough space to be turned around, if you have a lot of mushrooms do them in smaller batches rather than one big batch, to avoid them getting soggy or ending up with half fried mushrooms.
