Mushroom Fry Recipe

Mushroom Fry recipe or Mushroom Vepudu with step by step photos. The term “Vepudu” means “fry” in “Telugu” language and this recipe is typically of Andhra Cuisine and it’s very spicy too.

Mushrooms are something that is very much loved by my kids. I find it very difficult to accept it as fungi as it’s nothing short of any other vegetable.

If you are looking for a crunchy appetizer or a spicy dry curry to serve along any variety rice, this mushroom fry recipe is the one for you.

My SIL gave this recipe when she visited for the Christmas holidays. She saw this recipe being demonstrated in a TV channel. I have made it twice already and the kids love it very much.

First time I served it as a snack and the next time I served this as a side dish along with Peas Pulao and the combo was just fantastic. It will even go well with ghee rice or fried rice or any mildly spiced one pot rice.

Mushroom Fry Recipe

While I was making this fry, I found the process very similar to that of making a Manchurian. If you can imagine an Indian style Mushroom Manchurian that uses only Indian spices and is devoid of any bottled Chinese sauces, this is it.

I also found that the more curry leaves you add, the flavor just improved manifold. I’m sure that you all will love this as much as we loved it at home. Do give it a try and let me know how it turned out for you.

Points to Note:

1. After mixing flour to the mushroom mixture, immediately deep fry them. The more you rest, the more mushroom starts to let out water and your fritters will not be crisp enough after deep frying.

2. The fritters will drink more oil while deep frying as well.

3. If serving as an appetizer or snack, sprinkle some chaat masala powder after deep frying all over the fritters. It tastes so good.

    You changed your layout! I like this better! :) Love the mushroom fry as well. After years and years of running away from this “fungi”, I finally discovered how tasty it can be if seasoned well! I love the idea of an Indian manchurian!
