This is one recipe I was trying to get the accurate taste, you get what I am trying to say na , sigh. It’s almost like Manchurian but it’s not manchurian. This recipe includes all types of chillies hence chilly fry is the name. G and me both love mushroom , we have tired the simplest to exotic recipes with mushroom, but every time I would make deep-fried mushroom recipe it would never taste good, the mushroom would absorb all the oil and get soggy, sigh.
Then amma told what wrong I was doing. I always clean mushroom , then add hot water, salt, turmeric and microwave it for 5 to 6 minutes , then I would deep fry, amma told me for making gravy and other stuff I can do that and not for deep fry so this time I just soaked he mushrooms in hot water with salt and turmeric, drained it and used it, and then it came out very crispy and dint absorb much oil and it was an instant hit at home along with Schezwan fried rice. Those who prefer spicy food will love this , I love spicy food and always in search of spicy food , any food item I like, if it’s bland I try making it spicy. If my food is not spicy I just can’t take even one morsel of the food, I am that crazy of spicy food ok let me stop bragging about my love for spicy food and let’s start making Mushroom chilly Fry
