Mushroom Manchurian:(Restaurant Style)
During rainy afternoons, day dreaming, is so inevitable. I prefer day dreaming, to be honest...it just smacks of sentimentality. Not that a trait, I inherited or anything. Just like to live in my own post-apocalyptic life style...hunting, fishing, foraging, building tools?...
Hmmm, looking seriously to join the hunting troop at Oxford (only thing that stops me is, its so unusual for girls)! Just want to experiment 'how it would be to hunt and forage for our dinner plate'! What kind of karmic feeling do we actually experience, while doing so!!
Well, for today's recipe...I didn't gather this mushrooms for sure. Though I strongly wish to do in future...but I am ain't sure, how far my instincts are sharp to analyse an edible or poisonous mushrooms!!
Anyhow, I enjoyed this mushroom manchurian at Rain Forest Restaurant, Adyar Chennai with our family friends. Yeah, yeah you got it right...I was accompanied by bunch of vegetarians and that's why happened to taste this interesting appetizers.:)
White pepper 1 spoon
Soy sauce light
Green chilies 2 chopped finely
Green onions(white part alone finely chopped)
Egg whites from an egg
Oil for deep frying
Soy sauce heavy
Hot sauce(optional, I didn't use any)
Onion 1 medium finely chopped
Green chilies 3-4 chopped
Garlic 7 cloves chopped
Ginger 2" chopped
Green onion 4-6 chopped
Sesame oil few spoons.
Mix salt, MSG, pepper, chilies, soy sauce, flour, egg white and baste them over the mushrooms.
Now deep fry them in warm oil, till golden to reddish brown.
In a separate pan, heat sesame oil. Add chilies, onions, ginger and garlic, saute them. Add fried mushrooms as well. (Well...I skipped this step, as my mushrooms were very hot already and moreover...I consumed some as soon as they were fried, he he)
Now add all the sauces, let it coat to all the sides. Add green onions and remove from heat.
Enjoy. Yummy right!!!
