Curried Fried Mushrooms

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

Curried Fried Mushrooms  - adapted from Closet Cooking


1 cup flour
1 cup water (or beer or white wine)
1 egg
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 pound mushrooms (I used oyster and king oyster, slice any really large mushrooms to ensure even cooking)
2 cups panko bread crumbs
oil for frying

1. Mix the flour, water, egg and curry powder.
2. Dip the mushrooms into the batter and then dredge them in the panko bread crumbs.
3. Fry in oil until golden brown.



  1. The first time I saw fried mushroom was in a mushroom farm in Johor Kluang. It's very crip and delicious! I believe with the curry flavour it's much much better!

  2. YUUUMM!! I am drooling! I love mushrooms, but never had them fried. m

  3. Wow! These look so appetizing - I can see why the piggies just inhaled them. Next time, they may have to fight me for them! 8-)

  4. A Simple yet addictive dish...

  5. I am so making this dish. Have to go to the supermarket and get some mushrooms :)

  6. Looks so irresistable! It must be a lot of hardworks involved in the frying part.

  7. @ Pearl: Haha not only creative but addictive too :)

    @ Kitchen Corner : Hi, yup the curry powder makes it more flavorful :)

    @ burpanslurp: Hi, you should try this out...I tell you it can be addictive for those who loves mushrooms and crispy things ! :)

    @ Tangled Noodle : Haha you love mushroom prepared this way too? good then I fry more so you don't have to fight with them ^ *

    @ ck lam: yup simple and addictive :)

    @ Gert : You will definitely love it...and Mr.C will probably like it too :))))

    @ Food For Tots : Hi, haha ya the frying part is the hardest coz have to be attentive all the time when the mushrooms are in the wok, it burns easily. Too small a flame, the oil will soak into the mushroom, so the flame has to be medium so that the oil won't absorb back into the mushroom Practice makes perfect.
