½ cup water
3 lb oyster mushrooms
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp all-purpose seasoning
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
¼ cup corn starch
2 cups panko breadcrumbs
peanut oil

Making the Batter

Combine flour, cayenne pepper, all-purpose seasoning and baking powder in a bowl and mix well. 

Slowly stir in water, making sure to combine well. The consistency should be loose but not too runny.

Place in refrigerator until ready to make the oyster mushroom bites.

Making the Oyster Mushroom Bites

Remove the batter from the refrigerator.

Cut oyster mushrooms into bite-sized pieces.

Coat mushrooms in corn starch and reserve.

Fill a small bowl with panko breadcrumbs.

Dip mushroom bites in batter and then in breadcrumbs. Deep-fry until golden brown.

Set mushrooms on a plate and lightly sprinkle with all-purpose seasoning.

Serve mushrooms with hot sauce, ketchup, sriracha or other favorite sauces.
