Mushroom Manchurian

Mushroom Manchurian is one of my favorite Indo-Chinese dishes. You can serve this as an evening snack or serve it with Chinese fried rice. That moment when you fry the chopped garlic, spring onion bulbs, later add the soy sauce.. MMmmmm. Soo good! Be free to adjust the seasonings as per your taste. 

To Make This Recipe You Will Need : 

Button Mushrooms
450 Grams
All Purpose Flour
½ Cup
Corn Flour
½ Cup
Less than ½ Teaspoon for batter + ½ Teaspoon for the Sauce
Pepper Powder
½ Teaspoon for the batter + ½ Teaspoon for the Sauce
¼ th cup + 1 to 2 Tablespoons (or) As required
As required for deep frying + 2 Tablespoons
Garlic (crushed)
6 pods
Green Chillies ( chopped)
Soy Sauce ( I used Dark Soy Sauce)
1 Tablespoon
Red Chilli Sauce
1 Tablespoon
Spring onion bulbs (chopped)
2 to 3
1 Teaspoon
Corn flour dissolved in water
1 Tablespoon of flour + ½ cup of water

Method :

First make a batter by combining All-purpose flour, cornflour and

 season them with salt and pepper.

( Make sure that mushrooms get properly coated when they are 

dipped in the batter. 

The batter should not drain away, it should stick to the mushrooms),

 So carefully add water in small quantities and make the batter.

After making the batter, add the mushrooms to the batter and deep

fry them in the preheated oil until the coating gets crisp and turns

to light golden color. 

Note: 1. If the batter happens to end up soon, then follow the same 

procedure. Take equal quantities of both the flours, season them with

 salt and pepper, slowly add water, and make the batter.

2. After washing the mushrooms, let them rest in the colander for 

about 10 minutes so that the water will drain away and there will

 be no-fuss during frying them.

The next step is to make the sauce. 

To make the sauce add oil to a kadai, after the oil gets hot, add crushed 

garlic, chopped green chilies, and onion bulbs. Saute it until the 

garlic turns slightly brown in color. 

After sauteing add Red chili sauce, Soy sauce, pepper powder, salt, sugar and stir well. 

Next, add the cornflour solution which acts as a thickener, and keep stirring.

Now check for seasoning, add more sugar, pepper, salt if you want. When the sauce starts thickening switch off the flame and add the batter-fried mushrooms and mix well. 


Garnish it with spring onions and serve :)
