Curried Fried Mushrooms

Curried Fried Mushrooms


I am a mushroom fanatic! The other day a recipe for fried curried mushrooms on Indonesia-Eats caught my attention. I really liked the sound of deep frying mushrooms and I was surprised that I had never thought of it before. As if they did not sound good enough already, they were also curried! I don't deep fry very often but I just had to try deep frying mushrooms! In an effort to ensure a nice and crispy coating I decided to go with a heavier batter and a panko breadcrumb coating. While I was thinking about the fried mushrooms and what kind of dipping sauce to enjoy them with I kept coming back to a gorgonzola blue cheese dipping sauce which I decided to go with. The curried deep fries mushrooms turned out great! They were nice and light and crispy on the outside and the mushrooms were nice and moist and warm and mushroomy good on the inside. Each bite of these crispy, crunchy curried mushrooms was magical...mmm... The blue cheese dip went really well with the fried mushroom finishing off a perfect appetizer!

I have had deep fried mushroom before. However yours looks way better in using so many things in it to add flavors! I am kinda mushroom crazy too.

The famous fried mushrooms here in Indonesia is from Wonosobo (East Java) but I'm not sure whether they use curry.

Anyway, your curried fried mushrooms looks yummy.

Melissa said...

I would never have thought to put curry in something fried, especially mushrooms. That is a great idea. I love fried mushrooms, but I love curry even more, they sound amazing.

Oh, Kevin! I wish you posted this recipe 2 days ago. My mushrooms are now in the trash because I could not find a good recipe. I bought these very fat mushrooms the guy at the market claimed they were oyster mushroom (but I doubt it). I’ve never seen that kind before, and a short research I made online did not bring up anything that looked like oyster and my mushroom, or anything else familiar.
This recipe might have worked.

They do look great! As much as we LOVE stuffed mushrooms, we've never thought about frying them. After seeing your beauties, we may have to try ones with a bit of filling in them.

I was always a fan of deep fried mushrooms, but never would I have thought of curry fried mushrooms. I love curry. I also like spicy curry, I wonder how hot Madras curry would work. I may have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
