  • oil for deep-frying


  1. Prep: Tear maitake mushrooms with your hands into bite-size pieces. Mix all-purpose flour, katakuriko, and chicken stock powder in a mixing bowl, and add coat mushrooms with the flour mix.
  2. Fry: Heat one inch of oil in a frying pan. Once the oil is hot, deep fry the mushrooms in batches until golden brown. Remove fried mushrooms and place them in a strainer to remove excess oil.
