1 pound seitan (I use the Quick Seitan recipe from Vegweb)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon pepper
cayenne, to taste, optional
4 tablespoons nutritional yeast
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder, optional
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons yellow mustard or spicy mustard
2 cups unbleached flour , divided
3 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1. Make your seitan according to directions, molding into strips. When all done and cooled, cut into smaller strips. Mix together salt, onion, pepper, cayenne, nutritional yeast, baking powder and garlic powder in a pie plate or wide bowl.
2. In a second bowl, mix water, mustard and 1/3 cup of the flour. Add the rest of the flour to the seasonings bowl.
3. Heat the oil in a deep fry pan or skillet. Coat a seitan strip with the mustard batter and then dip into the flour mixture (crust). Place carefully into hot oil, and fry on both sides until crispy and golden.
