Serves/Makes: 4 | Difficulty Level: 2 | Ready In: < 30 minutes
1 cup flour
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 dash garlic powder
1 cup cold water
2 tablespoons shortening, melted
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced 1/4 inch thick
shortening for deep frying
In mixing bowl, combine the flour, cheese, salt, and garlic powder. Stir in the water, melted shortening, and egg; beat till smooth. Pat the mushrooms dry.
Dip mushrooms into batter. Fry, a few mushrooms at a time, in shortening heated to 365 degrees F. Fry till mushrooms are golden, about 3 minutes, turning once. Drain on paper toweling. Salt lightly and serve immediately.
Cook's Notes: To ensure nice, crispy, light mushrooms make sure the oil is at the proper temperature before dropping mushrooms in. Otherwise they will soak up oil and be greasy and heavy.
