Chilly Mushroom


Mushroom ( I used Holland mushroom) – 250 grams

All purpose flour – 1/2 cup

Corn flour – 1/2 cup

Pepper powder – 11/4 tsp

Salt – 11/4 tsp

Egg – 1 large, beaten

Water as needed

Tomato ketchup – 1 rounded tbsp

Soy sauce – 1 rounded tbsp

Peanut / Sesame Oil as needed

Ginger – a small piece, julinnned

Garlic – 3 big cloves, chopped

Onion – 1 medium, cut into square pieces

Capsicum – 1/2 a small capsicum

Scallions – 1/4 cup, chopped


Clean the mushrooms & cut each mushroom into 4 or 6 thick slices.

Make a slightly thick batter with the flours, beaten egg, 11/4 tsp of salt, 11/4 tsp of pepper powder adding enough water. Dip each mushroom piece into this batter & deep fry in hot oil on medium low heat till done. Drain & keep aside.

Heat 1 tbsp of oil & saute the ginger juliennes & chopped garlic till you get a very nice aroma. Add the chopped onions, scallions & capsicum; saute till translucent. Add the sauces & a pinch of pepper powder, add salt ( if needed). Fry for a minute & add 1/8 cup of water. Let boil & add the fried mushroom pieces. Saute on medium high heat for 5 minutes/ till dry.

Serve hot with fried rice/ as an appetizer.

Note: You may add a pinch of red food color to impart a gorgeous bright red color to the dish.
