Mushroom Bhajji

Mushroom pakoda is another besan flour preparation that comes out really good!


Mushrooms – 200 grams, Besan (gram) flour 200 grams, Rice flour 150 grams, Red Chilli powder to taste, salt to taste, vinegar two teaspoon full, baking soda one teaspoon and half teaspoon asafoetida (hing). Canola oil for frying.

  • Clean the mushrooms under running water. Marinate mushrooms in about four table spoon full of vinegar in a bowl for about ten to fifteen minutes.
  • Add the mixture of besan and rice flour to the bowl containing marinated onion. To this add chili powder, salt to taste, asafoetida and baking powder.
  • Mix these ingredients thoroughly. As far as possible avoid using water to make the above mix. Just add a little water only as necessary so all the ingredients form a thick paste.
  • Meanwhile heat required amount  (100 to 150 ml ) of oil on the stove.
  • When the oil is hot, deep fry the small lumps of the above mixture to golden brown.
