These little delights are so delicious, you'll be surprised how many you can eat!

Serve as a snack with a yummy dip or as a side to enhance your meal.

I normally make this for me and my sister to snack on while we watch the football, and I'll admit we have been known to make a second batch before its even close to halftime! Oops. :/

Hot tip: To make these even more delicious, sprinkle with parmesan cheese after frying.

Prep:

Cook:

5 Min

Ingredients

250-400 g
white button mushrooms
1 c
flour
1/2 c
cornflour/starch
1 tsp
salt
1 c
water
2 c
breadcrumbs (panko is best for this)
2-3 c
vegetable oil for deep frying (im just guessing the quantity!)

OPTIONAL

2 tsp
baking powder (i forgot to include this earlier because i dont usually add it, but can give your mushrooms a nice round look if thats what you like. doesnt make a difference for me)
Addtional
some people find this coating bland so if you're worried about it add some herbs or spices. i love it how it is.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oil to 190 degrees Celcius
2
Mix dry ingredients (except breadcrumbs) in a bowl and add water to make the batter (pancake consistency or close to it)
3
Using a fork or skewer, dip mushroom in batter and let excess drip off. I usually do a few at a time and lean them against the bowl until all the excess has finished dripping off.
4
Coat the battered mushroom in breadcrumbs and fry until golden.
5
Drain on paper towels and let stand for a few minutes as the mushroom will be piping hot inside. Season with salt & pepper as desired.
6
Serve as a side or as a snack.
