Oyster mushrooms fried to a crisp and drizzled with a leek and garlic-infused “butter”

Ingredients

  • For the crispy mushrooms:
  • 200 to 300grams Oyster mushrooms

  • 4 Tablespoons Glutinous Rice Flour

  • Salt to taste

  • 3 teaspoons Gochugaru (Korean Chili Flakes)

  • 2 Tablespoons Chickpea Flour

  • 3 to 5 Tablespoons Water

  • Vegetable Oil for frying

  • For the leek and garlic “butter”:
  • 30 grams Margarine or Any non-dairy alternative

  • 1 tablespoon Leeks (finely sliced)

  • 1 tablespoon Garlic (minced)

Directions

  • Trim the mushrooms into serving pieces and dredge them in glutinous rice flour. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine Glutinous rice flour, gochugaru, chickpea flour, salt, and water and mix until it turns into a smooth paste (similar to a thick soup).
  • Dip the mushrooms in the batter and fry them in oil over medium heat until crisp and golden brown. Drain excess oil on paper towels and arrange them on a serving plate.
  • Melt some butter in a small pan. Add in chopped garlic and sliced leeks and fry until the leeks are crispy.
  • Drizzle the butter mixture over the fried mushrooms and serve.
