3) Corn flour – 2 table spoon.

4) Red chili powder – ½ table spoon.

5) Coriander powder – ¼ table spoon.

6) Salt – to taste.

7) Oil – for frying.

Make the batter using the above ingredients (batter should be in a medium texture, not too loose or not too thick).

Hot oil in a frying pan, once the oil is hot dip the mushrooms in the batter and drops it carefully to the pan. Deep fry the same until they turn in to a slight golden brown colour and keep aside.
