Corn is a rich source of calories. It has abundant vitamin B complex and vitamin A. The other vegetable used in the dish, capsicum, is also a good source of vitamin A, vitamin E, folate, and dietary fiber. Including these vegetables in the diet helps ensure proper nutrition for children.
Let me share the recipe with you.
- 1 1/2 cups sweet corn kernels, crushed
- 1/2 cup capsicum, seeded, finely chopped
- 1 cup potato, boiled, mashed
- 1/2 teaspoon chat masala powder (available in Indian stores)
- 1/2 teaspoon garam masala (available in Indian stores)
- 2-3 tablespoons rice flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt, or as per taste
- 1/2 teaspoon oil, for making each cutlet
- Crush sweet corn in a mixer or blender. No need to add water. In a mixing bowl, add crushed corn and chopped capsicum. Blending the capsicum is not necessary if the pieces are finely chopped.
- Add all other ingredients, except oil. Gently mix the ingredients.
- Heat a flat pan. Add some oil for shallow-frying. Take some mixture in your fingers and shape it like a patty. Make 4-6 patties at a time. Place them on the greased hot pan, one near the other.
- Sprinkle some oil on the top. You can cover the pan for a while to quicken the cooking process.
- Keep the heat medium-low. Once the bottom part of the patties become crunchy and golden brown, flip them. Add a few drops of oil on the top side too.
- Shallow-fry both sides until they are crispy and golden brown. Remove, and place them on a serving plate. Repeat the process to make all the cutlets.
- Once you prepare the dough, instantly start making cutlets. Otherwise, the dough may start leaving the water. You can add some rice flour to make the dough dry. However, adding more rice flour may damage the texture.
- Serve corn capsicum cutlets on a serving plate with tomato sauce. Children and elders alike love to munch them!
