Serves 3 people

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sweetcorn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons chickpea flour (besan)
  • 1 tablespoon rice flour
  • 1/4 cup onions, julienned
  • 2 teaspoons fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon curry leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 inch ginger, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon carom seeds (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 green chili, not so hot, finely chopped
  • oil for deep-frying

Instructions

  1. Set aside 2 teaspoons of corn kernels.
  2. In a blender, add the remaining corn kernels. Pulse them once or twice to get them crushed a bit.
  3. Place the crushed kernels and whole kernels in a mixing bowl.
  4. Add all remaining ingredients (except the cooking oil) to the mixing bowl with the corn.
  5. Mix well to get a thick batter. Check the consistency. If the batter appears thin, mix in some more chickpea flour to adjust it.
  6. Now, heat the oil for deep-frying. Keep the heat on medium-high. Take small portions of the batter in your fingers and drop them into the hot oil. Turn them occasionally to ensure uniform frying.
  7. Once they turn golden brown and crispy, remove them. Place them on an absorbent paper towel.
  8. Repeat the process with the remaining batter.
  9. These mouthwatering corn fritters (pakora) are ready to serve. Eat them hot and enjoy the taste!
