    ###**Directions -**

    Step 1) Clean Mushroom well and cut them into bite size pieces if they’re too big.

    Step 2) Take a wide bowl and add corn flour, all purpose flour, salt and pepper to it. Mix everything.

    Step 3) Add 3 tbsp of water and make thick batter. Dip Mushrooms into this batter and coat them well.

    **Note: Don’t let Mushrooms sit in the batter for too long else they’ll absorb the water from the batter and they can sputter while deep frying.**

    Step 4) Carefully drop the coated Mushrooms into hot oil and deep fry until golden and crispy from all the sides.

    Step 5) Take them out on paper towel and keep aside.

    Step 6) Heat a wok and add 3 tbsp of oil. Let it smoke.

    **Note: From here on, the flame will always be on high, so keep stirring as soon as you add something in the wok.

    **Note: Stir frying in a wok on high flame gives the dish a unique smoky flavour.**

    Step 7) Add ginger, garlic and green chillies and quickly stir them.

    Step 8) Add spring onion white, onion Petals and Capsicums (bell pepper).

    Step 9) Stir fry them until they get translucent. Add salt and pepper.

    Step 10) Add vinegar, soy sauce, red chilli sauce and tomato sauce and give it a mix. You can substitute vinegar with lemon juice.

    Step 11) Add mushrooms to it and mix them with sauces.

    **Note: If you like Mushrooms super Crunchy in the final dish, add them in the last. I like it a bit soft and crunchy so I cook them little bit longer in sauces.**

    Step 12) Add sugar to it and mix.

    Step 13) Take one tbsp of corn flour and mix it with 6-7 tbsp of water and make a slurry. Add this to the wok and cook for two minutes.

    Step 14) Once it all comes together, turn off the flame and garnish it with spring onion greens and roasted sesame seeds.

    Enjoy the scrumptious Chilli Mushroom Dry.

    **Note: Incase you like gravy, you can increase the amount of water you add to the slurry and cook until it reaches desired consistency.**
