Baby Corn Fingers

Today we are starting with 4th  and final week of BM 35. For this week I choose to cook recipes with Corn.  Maize or Corn is a large grain plant. The leafy stalk produces ears which contain the grain, which are seeds called  ketnels. Maize kernels are often used in cooking as a starch.  Corn is used in many ways in various  cuisines.

Baby corn or young corn is a cereal grain taken from corn ( maize) harvested early while the ears are very small and immature. Baby corn is eaten both raw and cooked. Baby corn is most common in Asian Cuisine.  For day 1, I made a yummy  snack which is perfect for this cold weather. Simple yet delicious. Here goes the recipe.....


We need:


Baby corn  12
Maida / All purpose flour 2spoons
Corn flour  2 spoons
Rice flour 2 spoons
Chili powder 1/2sp
Chaat masala 1/2 sp
Haldi / Turmeric 1/2sp
Salt to taste
Eno fruit salt 1/4spoon
Oil for deep frying.


Method:


I have used canned baby corn here.
If you are using fresh baby corn, cook baby corn in boiling water for 4 to 5 minutes.
Drain water and let it cool.
In a mixing bowl add all the dry ingrediants except eno fruit salt.
Mix well and add water to make a thick batter without lumps.
Heat oil in deep frying pan .
Just before frying the baby corn add  fruit salt to batter and mix well.
Now dip  one baby corn at a time in the batter and drop slowing in the hot oil.
Fry few  baby corns at a time till they turn golden brown and crisp.
Remove  and place them on a paper towel to remove excess oil.
Serve hot with ketchup or green chutney.

I wanted to try baby corn but wasn't sure how the canned ones would taste. Baby corn fingers look very tasty.
