For this second week of Blogging Marathon, I chose to make party pleasers for kids. So you will be seeing kid friendly recipes for the three days. Priya Srinivasan is hosting Srivalli’s Kid’s Delight this month and all my entries are going to that event. Until yesterday morning, I didn’t have any idea about the dishes I was going to make. I chanced to see a cookery show by a chef in a Tamil channel ( I forgot the channel name and the program name) and he demonstrated this mushroom 65. This is so much like the dry manchurian I make but as this is from a chef, I just went with the name he gave.

The batter mix has both maida and corn flour with nearly equal quantities which resulted in a crispy roast. And it also absorbed the sauce immediately and the result was fantastic. As this is an entry for Kid’s Delight, I was thinking on my daughter’s taste and so added less chilly and sauces to make it slightly spicy which my daughter could withstand. But still she told me that it was spicy but she polished off the plate dunking the mushrooms in ketchup. As it has to be finger food, I opted to use the whole mushrooms so that kids can use their hand to eat. Make this for your kid and she/he would be really happy.
