Baby Corn Pakoda (Fritters)

baby corn pakoda

Baby corn pakoda or bhutte ka pakoda is something exotic to most people. I once had them at a party as a starter. I asked the hostess about the recipe of baby corn pakoda and she was happy to oblige. Here I am sharing her recipe with you with few changes made.
Recipe of baby corn pakoda
10 baby corns (small, slim and tender bhutta)
1 1/2 cup besan (gram flour/ chickpea flour)
1/4 cup makki atta (cornmeal/ maize flour)
1/2 tsp green chilli paste
1/4 tsp red chilli powder
Salt to taste
1 tsp lemon juice
Oil to deep fry
baby corns

1. Clean baby corn of peel and fiber etc. Cut them lengthwise into 2 parts.
2. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl except baby corn and oil. Add water little by little, mixing with other hand, to get pakora (fritter) batter like consistency. Beat the batter well so that you get fluffy pakodas.
3. Heat sufficient oil in a kadhai (wok). Dip each baby corn piece in the batter and drop gently in the oil. Fry pakoda till golden brown and crisp. Drain on an absorbent paper by slotted spoon (pauni/ chhari).
4. Serve baby corn pakoda with tomato sauce or chutney.
