HOW TO MAKE KETO VEGAN FRIED CHICKEN?
Obviously we use oyster mushrooms to prepare this dish. There is no chicken here!
To prepare crispy fried oyster mushrooms, clean the mushrooms and prepare 2 bowls with liquid and dry ingredients.
In one bowl is nut milk (I was using almond milk and you can use another nut milk if you like), combined with lemon juice.
First, you will need to dip the mushrooms into liquid and after that in dry ingredients.
For the second bowl you need defatted almond flour, ground paprika, powdered garlic, baking powder, salt and pepper. It is very important to use defatted almond flour and not ground almonds or regular almond flour because it won't be able to keep up together during the frying. Defatted almond flour is behaving like a regular wheat flour and it's perfect for frying like this.

After you dipped the mushrooms in liquid and in dry coating, fry them in deep hot oil until golden brown.
Set them aside on a paper towel, sprinkle with some salt and serve.
