Vegetarian Dish

Went to this Vegetarian restaurant at Kota Damansara to celebrate my customer cum friend’s birthday. Sorry forgot the restaurant name…but the food was really good. We went there just past lunch hour time so the restaurant was like soooooo quiet. Then came this heavenly dish, dip fried mushroom in butter sauce. It was really really very yummy lor…


Since the above was so yummy, I decided I wanted to cook up my own version and try it out. Then I realised I didn’t have fresh milk in my office. So? Make do with evaporated milk la….so here’s my version….


So how’s the taste? Not as happening la and I blame it on the milk. So “em kam yuen”, I tried again today for lunch and the result was……amazing! It’s sooooooo yummmmieeeee…ok self praise is no praise…please ask Angie la!

Anyway here’s the “ai ya ya a la la” (my made up) recipe if you wanna try!


1 box/prepacked Organic Shitake/white mushrooms (from supermarket)

Tempura flour

4 stalks Curry leaves

1 full tbsp Butter

1 tsp salt (less if you don’t like it too saltish)

1/2 tsp sugar (more if u like it sweet)

some onion shallots

5 tbsp fresh milk

some corn flour solution in milk



Mix tempura flour in water to make batter (instructions should be on the box!)

Then dip mushrooms in the batter and dip fry

Leave on plate

Butter sauce

Put 1 tbsp oil in the wok to heat up then put in the curry leaves & shallots (and some cili padi if you want) to fry till fragrant and crispy

Add butter, salt & sugar and then milk

Then finally before taking up the sause pour in the corn flour solution to thicken the sause a bit..

Finally pour sause over the dip fried mushrooms and serve immediately!


Try it out! I guarantee it’s yummy one! cheh…self praise again!
