Mushroom Mmanchurian

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 35 minutes
Serves: 4 servings
4 tablespoons Cornflour (corn starch)
2 tablespoons Maida Flour
250 gms (1/2 lb) Fresh Mushrooms (white button mushrooms)
1/2 teaspoon Garlic Paste
1/2 teaspoon Ginger Paste
½ teaspoon Soy Sauce
Cooking Oil
4 tablespoons Water
For Sauté
1/2 teaspoon Garlic Paste
1/2 teaspoon Ginger Paste
1 Green Chilli, finely chopped
1 small Onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons finely chopped Spring Onion
2 tablespoons Cooking Oil
1½ tablespoons Soy Sauce
1/2 tablespoon Chilli Sauce
2 tablespoons Tomato Ketchup

Method for Manchurian:

  1. step-1
    Wash and clean mushrooms to remove any dirt. Dry them with kitchen towel and cut them into medium pieces.
  2. step-2
    Mix maida flour, cornflour, ginger paste, garlic paste, 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce, salt and 4 tablespoons water in a bowl. Mix and make a medium thick batter. Dip mushrooms pieces in prepared batter and coat them with it.
  3. step-3
    Heat oil in a deep kadai (pan). Deep fry them over medium flame until they just started to turn light golden brown. Do not deep fry them long time otherwise they start to release the water and oil may be splatter. Take them out from oil and drain excess oil.

Method for Sauté:

  1. step-4
    Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a wide, thin-bottomed, pan (wok) on high flame. Add ginger paste, garlic paste, chopped green chilli and diced onion. Sauté on high flame for 1-2 minutes.
  2. step-5
    Add soy sauce, tomato ketchup, chilli sauce, salt, fried mushroom pieces and spring onion; mix them well.
  3. step-6
    Now toss and cook. Keep tossing everything and cook for 1-2 minutes. Delicious dry mushroom manchurian is ready.
Tips and Variations:

  • After deep frying, do not keep fried mushrooms idle for long time otherwise they may turn soggy because they release the little water after cooking.
  • We have used white button mushrooms to make this spicy dish. However, you can use any type of eatable mushrooms.
  • Chilli sauce and soy sauce forms the basic taste of any manchurian recipe. You can adjust the quantity of these two sauces to get a desired taste.
Taste: Soft mushrooms covered in crispy outer layer mixed with dry, spicy masala.
Serving Ideas: Serve it as a side dish with fried rice. It makes a irresistible standalone snack when served with mint chutney or tomato ketchup.

Hi, recenly I came across this blog. Looks very interesting. Can I suggest some solution to the soggy mushrooms? I pan fried them till they dried up. It takes approx. 10 mnts. then added to the batter. Hope this helps. Thank you.

Hi. Made this dish for dinner tonight. I found the mushrooms very soggy as opposed to being crispy. What is the reason?

Response: Hi Nikki, mushrooms contains more water and so they turns soggy if you keep them idle for long time after cooking. You have to serve the manchurian immediately after cooking.

It looks good and easy to cook. Can we use rice flour instead of maida?

Response: Yes, you can use rice flour instead of maida flour. Adjust the amount of water according to it to make medium thick batter.

It came out yummy but not crispy. Can somebody tell me how to make this bit crispy?

Response: Hi Sonia, corn flour is used while making batter to make the fried mushrooms crispy. Deep fry the mushrooms on medium flame to make crispy. Do not keep them idle after deep frying otherwise they will turn soggy because cooked mushrooms release the water.
