Connie "Kiyu"'s notes for this recipe:
This is a great side dish for any meal! They are crispy and tasty and you will love them so much that you'll want to serve them always with a great smile. Your family will love them!

TIP: Try using the same recipe for "Portabella Mushroom Fries"! Cut them about 1 1/2" thick and either deep fry them or fry them like this one. Serve them with your favorite steak dinner! ENJOY!

Personalize This


Clean mushrooms with clean cloth or paper towel. Slice them about 1 1/2" thick. (Do not wash mushrooms. Washing makes them soggy and looses it's flavor.)
In a wide bowl, add sliced mushroom and sprinkle salt & pepper and mix well. Let stand for 15 minutes. (This helps the mushroom absorb all the salt and releases the water naturally.
Discard the excess water. Add red chili powder, corriander-cummin, and mix well. Toss lightly. Let stand again for another 10 minutes.
Heat your cast iron griddle or a non-stick pan. Drizzle 2tsp. oil to coat the bottom on the pan.
Coat generously, all the mushrooms with panko breading or corn meal. Fry on a medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. (Over-frying will make the mushroom get rubbery and will loose it's texture.) A great side dish. ENJOY!

They do look great, and I have never had them fried...

They are good! Portabella Mushroom Fries are yummy, too. Just use the same recipe. Cut them about 1 1/2" thick. Great with your steak dinner. :-)

Oops! I do use the egg wash for the Portabella Mushroom Fries. Then, coat with Panko Breading.
