Breaded Mushrooms

Occasionally, I would cave in to “comfort food” cravings. Accordingly to Mr. Wiki (Wikipedia), comfort food is food which often provides a nostalgic or sentimental feeling to the person eating it, frequently with a high carbohydrate level and a simple preparation. Yup, that’s about right. French fries, Fried Chicken Wings, Krispy Kreme…the list goes on. As much as I love the crunchy texture in deep fried food, I cannot stand it if they are too oily and greasy. Does that make any sense?? Well, properly fried food are not supposed to be greasy at all. I usually adopt the flash frying method where the food is cooked in a high temperature oil for a short period of time. The exterior will form a crusty texture while sealing the juices inside, so minimal oil can penetrate inside. Mushrooms are one of the perfect ingredients!
 

Ingredients:

1 punnet (approx. 300 g) whole mushrooms (I’m using a mix of button and Portobello)
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup corn flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup water
1 cup panko breadcrumb
4 cups vegetable oil for frying
