  • 150 g oyster mushrooms
  • 1 ½ cups plain flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoon paprika powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper (add more or less depending on how spicy you like it)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Cracked pepper
  • Oil for frying, ive used canola oil

Dipping Sauces

  • Creamy BBQ - mix equal parts of mayonnaise with bbq sauce and a dash of apple cider vinegar
  • Sriracha


  • Wipe oyster mushrooms with a damp paper towel to remove any dirt
  • In a large bowl, add the flour and all the spices. Mix together until well combined
  • In a second bowl, add ⅓ cup of the flour mixture with ¾ cups of water. Whisk together until to achieve a smooth batter consistency
  • Dip each mushroom into the wet batter mixture then into the flour mixture. Double coat each mushroom back into the wet batter and then back in the flour mixture, making sure the mushrooms are fully coated in flour
  • Heat oil in a pot over high heat and carefully drop mushrooms into the oil one at a time in batches. Don't overcrowd the pot, you can fry a few at a time depending how large your pot is. Let them fry for a few minutes until nice and golden on all sides
  • Remove and place on paper towels to remove excess oil, then place on a cooling rack to keep crispy until the rest is done. Enjoy with your favourite dipping sauce!



  • The information on the nutritional table is based on the mushrooms being “uncooked” so the frying oil is not included. This will vary on the type of oil that’s being used
