Tempura Mushrooms with Sweet and Spicy Sauce

Okay, okay ... I promise myself I won't have fried stuff for supper but these button mushroom had been sitting my fridge for 2 days and they are begging me to heat them up because they can't stand the cold anymore. So, so, so ... I fried them and let them swim in some sweet and spicy sauce.

They should be happy. I think they are hot. *giggle*

Here's the concoction of my dipping sauce:

  • 1/2 tablespoon Lime Juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon (Maggi) Chilli Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Light Soy Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Coriander Roots, chopped
  • 1/3 teaspoon Sesame Seed Oil

* Sweet and Spicy Dipping Sauce *


  1. that's supper? your supper more sumptuous than my dinner XD

  2. Those look good, they must have a great crunch.

  3. I tried my first Tempura mushroom in KL, they were very yummy. I don't usually eat deep-fried food. Your tempura mushrooms looked yummy! *slurp slurp*
