Tear mushrooms into large pieces. In a bowl, combine flour mixture ingredients and toss with the mushrooms, shaking off excess. In a wok, heat the palm oil. Deep fry the mushrooms in batches until crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels.

In a clean wok or frying pan, cook margarine and evaporated milk together until mixture is grainy. Add in curry leaves, chilies, and seasoning powder.
