Recipe                                                                                               Print Recipe

Serves 4-6


300-400 g Oyster Mushrooms (if unavailable use sliced cup mushrooms)

1/2 cup Tempura flour (if unavailable, use plain flour mixed with sparking water)

1/3 cup cold water

3-4 red Chilli (finely  chopped)

4 Cloves Garlic (crushed)

2 tbsp Finely chopped Ginger

1/2 cup Red Capsicum (finely diced)

3 tbsp Finely chopped coriander leaves

2 tbsp Light Soya Sauce

2 tsp Ground Black Pepper

Veg Oil for frying

1 tbsp Peanut oil


Mix the tempura flour and water to get a smooth batter and keep it aside. Heat the oil in a wok for frying the mushrooms. Dip the mushrooms in the batter and start frying till crispy and golden (about 3-4 minutes) Repeat the process for all the mushrooms.

In another pan heat the peanut oil and fry the ginger, garlic till fragrant. Then add the capsicum and red chilli and fry for another 5 minutes. We only want to lightly toss them in oil and not over cook it. 

Add the pepper and soya sauce followed by the crispy mushrooms. Quickly toss the mushrooms in the ginger-garlic soya mixture till well coated. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and serve immediately.
