CALORIES206 kcal


  • Philips Air fryer


  •  oz. mushrooms or about 200 gm.
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt or plant-based yogurt try cashew or soy yogurt


  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup grated cheese or vegan cheese
  • 1 tsp. cayenne or paprika
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • ¼ tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. olive oil to spray


  • Remove the dirt and wipe the mushrooms clean with a damp cloth. Quarter them. Choose fresh mushrooms.
  • Beat Greek yogurt or plant-based yogurt and spread on a plate. Coat the cut mushrooms in the yogurt to cover well. This helps with helping the outer coating adhere to the mushrooms.
  • Mix together breadcrumbs, grated cheese or vegan cheese, cayenne or paprika, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and turmeric powder in a shallow plate.
  • I needed to do mine in 2 batches. I used parchment paper for easier cleanup. Do not use parchment paper while preheating. Always use it with food on top.
  • Now dunk the yogurt dipped mushrooms in the breading mix. Use your hands to press down the breading so that it sticks to the mushrooms.
  • Preheat air fryer at 390 F or 200 C for 3 minutes.
  • Lay the prepared breaded mushrooms on the parchment paper in air fryer basket. Spray olive oil on top. Air fry at 200 C for 4-5 minutes till golden brown and done.
  • The time may vary depending upon the size of your mushrooms and the model of your air fryer. I use Philips air fryer.
  • The mushrooms will be very hot so wait for them to cool down a bit before eating.
  • Serve hot with ketchup, spicy mayo or a dip of your choice.


1. Always use fresh mushrooms. Button mushroom work well. Do not wash them. Just brush off the dirt and wipe with a damp cloth. 2. You can use 2 beaten eggs in place of yogurt if you like. 3. This recipe is vegetarian and I have also tried the vegan options of plant-based yogurt and vegan cheese in the recipe successfully. 4. You can use panko for a crunchier breading. 5. Cutting mushroom in quarters helps them cook faster and also makes them more flavorful. 6. Canned mushroom may not work for this recipe as they retain a lot of moisture and the breading will get soggy.
