Babycorn salt and pepper .... a super yummy appetizer

Tried this recipe at a restaurant and love it. My kids loved it so much that we had to make it at home the very next week. The recipe is so easy involving just a few ingredients that I could not say no to try making it. If you looking  for a quick appetizer without sweating out a lot that is perfect to top up your menu for guests then this one is worth a try. You can just make it in no time

Finally I feel the very basic spices in our kitchen - salt and pepper - alone can do wonders in a recipe to bring out awesome taste. Loved it a lot 

Serves... 4 ppl
Serve option... Hot

This is what u'll need....

Babycorn - 10
Corn Flour - 1 tbspn
Garlic - 2 big cloves 
Coriander stalks chopped - 1 tbspn
Oil for frying
Crushed Pepper to taste 
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....

  • Slice each baby corn into two halves lengthwise. Cut them again into 2 or 3 pieces
  • Toss them into a pressure cooker with little water to cook the babycorn
  • Add in little salt and pressure cook for 4-5  whistles on medium flame
  • Remove from flame. Once pressure is released drain excess excess water and keep it aside
  • In a bowl spoon add a tablespoon of cornflour
  • Add salt to taste
  • Crush pepper coarsely. I used mortar and pestle for this job to get a good taste
  • Add a little water to this and make a thin mixture

  • Add the cooked babycorn pieces to the bowl
  • Toss them around to coat all the pieces evenly. Let this sit for about 5-10 mins
  • Meanwhile heat oil in a kadai
  • Slide in a few pieces of battered babycorn pieces into hot oil and cook it for a few about a minute or done
  • Drain them on paper towels to remove excess oil
  • In a shallow pan add a tspn of oil. Chop garlic finely and toss it in
  • Add a tabespoon of chopped coriander stems / stalks. This gives a beautiful flavour to the dish
  • Add crushed pepper into the pan
  • Toss in the fried babycorn pieces into the pan and give it a good mix to coat the pepper and stalks
  • Turn off the flame and transfer to a serving plate/bowl
  • Serve hot and enjoy

                                                        • Coriander stalks give a beautiful flavour to any dish. Make sure you dont cook it long. Get it to be warm and it gives out a beautiful flavour
                                                        • Careful with salt and pepper as we are adding in two stages
                                                        • The pieces dont take long to cook as its only the coating that needs to be actually cooked
