Beer Battered Button Mushrooms

Beer is a popular ingredient used in batter to coat food before frying mainly because the bubbles in the beer aerate the batter by adding body and lightness to it. Combining with white button mushrooms, each bite is a burst of flavour which simply explodes in your mouth. A simple and easy appetizer to prepare at home.
