This is one finger food that everyone will love, crunchy on the outside and moist and juicy on the inside . The curry flavored batter gave the mushroom extra oomph. I knew it will turn out nice when I found this recipe on Kevin’s blog. I shaked some Cajun spice on the done mushrooms ( though it was not in Kevin's recipe ) and to my delight it tasted fantastic. My Piggies wiped them out in juz seconds….it was that delicious !
Fixing up the batter was one easy task, but the most difficult part was the coating of the mushrooms and the deep frying part. Have to watch the temperature of the oil , for the bread crumbs burn easily. I can only deep-fry two or three mushrooms at one go...I am a slow coach alrite :P
