Mushroom 65

If you want an exotic starter or an evening snack “mushroom 65” is the one. Even the kids and adults who don’t like mushrooms will fall for this dish.


Mushrooms                                                   8 no’s
All purpose flour(Maida)                           3 tbsp
Corn flour                                                      1 tbsp
Black Pepper Powder                                 1/2 tsp
Oil                                                                   1 tsp
Onion                                                             2 tbsp finely chopped
Ginger & Garlic Paste                                 2 tsp
Tomato Ketchup                                          1 tbsp
Maggi Chilli garlic sauce                           1 tbsp
Soya Sauce                                                    ¼ tsp
Vinegar (optional)                                         1 tsp
Capsicum or spring onions                        1 tbsp finely chopped
Salt                                                                 as needed


Clean the mushrooms with paper towel or gently with a clean cloth. Do not wash the mushrooms in water as they will absorb the water and become soggy.

In a bowl mix the maida, corn flour, black pepper powder and salt with water. Make sure the consistency is medium and not watery. Keep the batter aside.

In the kadai heat the oil, dip the mushrooms in the batter and fry it in the oil equally on all sides. Once all the bubbles in the oil stops then it means the mushrooms are cooked and done. Remove it and keep it aside.

Now to prepare the sauce, in a pan heat the oil, add onions and sauté until golden brown. Now add the ginger and garlic paste and sauté for 20 sec’s. Add the tomato ketchup, chilli & garlic sauce, soya sauce, vinegar and a dash of pepper. Mix them good, keep the stove in low flame.

Now add the fried mushrooms, mix it wel until the sauce is coated well all over the mushrooms.

Garnish it with capsicum or spring onions and your MUSHROOM 65 is ready to be served.

  5. Hi Priya,

    Could I make this dish ahead of time (3/4 hours)? If so, how should I store it until ready to eat? Would it be OK to reheat it when ready to be served or would it affect the quality of the dish? I'm throwing my mom a surprise birthday party and would like to make this as a starter. I was thinking I could put it in the oven on a low temp to keep it warm until time to serve, would this work?

    Thanks! =)

  6. Hi Sd,
    Thanks for stopping by, first of all wishing your MOM a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY, it is really nice of you to give a surprise party.You can surely make it before 3 - 4 hrs, just make sure not to wash the mushrooms otherwise they will drink all the oil and will get soggy. You surely reheat and give it as starter, you can make the mushroom 65, heat in the oven and serve it before the party. Do not keep in the oven for very long time, it might take away all the moisture. I hope I have answered your question, have a great day and wonderful party as well.

  7. Wow..its really tempting me priya ;) drool worthy.. bookmarked :) will try this soon...
