  1. Wash and slit baby corn horizontally. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add all-purpose flour, rice flour, corn flour, thick curd or yogurt, ginger-garlic paste, coriander powder, chat masala, garam masala powder, turmeric powder, red chili powder, and salt. Mix well to form a lump-free batter.
  3. The batter should be thin in consistency as shown in the photo. Add just enough water to make the batter thin.
  4. Heat the oil in a deep-bottomed pan. Dip the baby corn pieces in the batter. Slowly slide each of them into the hot oil. Keep the heat medium-high.
  5. Turn the baby corn occasionally to ensure uniform frying. Once the baby corn starts becoming crispy, reduce the flame.
  6. Fry them until they turn golden and crispy. Remove and place on an absorbent paper towel.
  7. Repeat the procedure to make all baby corn golden fingers.
  8. Now, hot golden-fried baby corn is ready to eat! Munch them as they are or with tomato sauce. Enjoy the taste!
