Jamur Goreng Krispi - Crispy Oyster Mushroom Fritters

Oyster mushroom is one of the most commonly found mushroom in Indonesia, and one of the cheapest too. It is not surprising then that we have so many dishes made with this as the main ingredient. One of the latest dish that crops up using this mushroom is jamur goreng krispi, or crispy oyster mushroom fritters. Basically this is our version of tempura mushroom, with Indonesian spices incorporated in the batter. Once all the mushrooms are used up, I like to deep fry the leftover batter until fluffy and crispy, pretty much what I do with leftover tempura batter too, so… yummy. ♥

Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 15 mins

Total Time: 30 mins

Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 150 gram oyster mushroom (Indonesian: jamur tiram), tear into bite size pieces
  • enough oil for deep frying
  • Batter
  • 100 gram all purpose flour (Indonesian: tepung terigu)
  • 100 ml water
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cloves garlic (Indonesian: bawang putih), grated
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander (Indonesian: bubuk ketumbar)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper (Indonesian: bubuk lada putih)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (Indonesian: soda kue)
  • Condiments
  • tomato sauce (Indonesian: saus tomat)
  • chili sauce (Indonesian: saus cabe botolan)

Instructions

  1. Mix all batter ingredients until smooth, drop oyster mushroom into the batter and mix well.
  2. Deep fry the coated mushrooms until golden brown and crispy. Drain on wire rack/paper towel. You can do this in batches since overcrowding the pot will make the temperature drops too much, not desirable when deep frying.
  3. If you have any leftover batter, you can thinly stream this into the hot oil to make crispy flakes (very much like how you would make kremes or tempura flakes). Drain the flakes on paper towel.
  4. Serve the crispy mushroom fritters and flakes immediately. In Indonesia, we love dipping this in tomato sauce and/or chili sauce, but they are delicious as is.

    Are those mushroom mushy from inside or crispy?

    • Anita says:

      The mushroom retains its original texture, only the outer layer that is coated with batter is crispy.

        Ok ma'am.. Thanks. Yesterday we have tried above recipe but without egg . It was less crispy .. Any suggestion for that ?

        • Anita says:

          Try to keep the batter as cold as possible. Usually, I chill the mixture in the fridge for about 30 minutes to make sure its really cold, and then when I take it out to be fried, I will even add 5-6 ice cubes into the mixture to help it stay cold even outside the fridge while it's being fried. Most of the time, cold mixture and hot frying oil will yield crispier fried fritters.
