Mushroom Fritters (Cucur Cendawan)


My Dear Readers,

Assalamualaikum and hello everyone.

Yesterday I have shared with you Squid Fritters. Today I am sharing a variation of the same called Mushroom Fritters or Cucur Cendawan.The Mushroom Fritters taste great with hot Thai Chilli sauce. We can also use the batter for frying other vegies like eggplant,cauliflower, bitter gourd or spinach.

Finger food like this is also great for children parties or a small get together with friends and family.

Enjoy the short video.

Here's the recipe:

Mushroom Fritters (Cucur Cendawan)

15 pcs mushrooms
2 eggs
4 tbs corn flour
2 tbs butter
some oil for frying
salt and pepper to taste


1) Beat the eggs,flour,butter,salt and pepper together until smooth.
2) Dip the mushroom in the batter.
3) Heat oil and fry the mushroom
4) Remove from oil when brown and drain on kitchen towel or rice paper. Ready to serve.

Bon appetit.



It is with deep sadness and sorrow when I read that there are places in this world that pose danger to women. Women that are supposed to be cherished and protected live in fear and despair.Top of the list is Afghanistan. The ongoing conflict, NATO airstrikes and cultural practices pose a serious danger for women there.

Next is The Democratic Republic of Congo.The women have suffered during the 1998-2003 war that killed 5.4 million people, due to staggering levels of sexual violence that continues till today.

Pakistan ranked third.The cultural and tribal practices are harmful to women. These include acid attacks, child and forced marriage and punishment or retribution by physical and sexual abuse.

And the fourth place goes to India.In 2009, it was estimated that 100 million people, mostly women and girls, were victims of trafficking.90 per cent of trafficking took place within the country.Consequently, some 3 million victims were turned into prostitutes, of which about 40 per cent were children.Apart from trafficking there is the problem with murder of women and baby girls.Around 50 million girls are thought to be "missing" over the past century due to female infanticide and foeticide in the country,

Sad isn't it. I leave you with the following poem.

Li Qingzhao—Outstanding female writer and poet of Song Dynasty (1084 - 1151)


Seek ,seek find , find , cold ,cold ,
Lonely , lonely , sad , sad , miserable ,
Miserable, woeful , woeful” .
I look for what I miss ;
I know not what it is .
I feel so sad , so dreary ,
So lonely , without cheer .
But I’m afraid the craft floating on the two creeks
Cannot be loaded with so much sorrow .

Till we meet again. Take care of yourself.Be safe.
Jazakum Allahu Khairan
