Crispy baby corn fry

Baby corn is so yummy and such a favourite to all. Loads of ways in which one can enjoy these cuties. We love it deep fried, in gravies, as starters, as pizza toppings and a lot more ways. This version of baby fry turns out very crispy and the best part is it is very very easy to pull the recipe together. The fried baby corn versions I have shared in my blog are the battered ones - Baby corn golden fry and Babycorn-65. They are great to taste and this recipe here makes yummy baby corn fry too but using just dry ingredients

I wont say its a kids favourite.... well it is everybody's favourite. Crispy, spicy coating on baby corn gives it a great taste. Bite sized pieces make it  more interesting and easy to eat. It is so addictive that no one can have just a few. It is gone as soon as it is served and there is always a demand for more

The taste is all about the spices you use to jazz up the babycorn pieces. I have used about 4-5 spices but you can top up the spice-list with your favourites. Spice mix,  flour and babycorn are the only stuff needed to make this.... and ofcourse oil. I cook the baby corn ahead of time and let it cool down. Once I need to make the fry I just add all ingredients to a bowl and toss the baby corn pieces too so that its well coated. Deep fry them and thats it they are ready to eat

Serves... 4 ppl 
Serve option... Hot

This is what u'll need...

Baby corn - 12 pieces
Corn flour - 1 tbspn
Rice flour - 1 tbspn
Red chilli powder - 1/4 tspn
Kashmiri red chilli powder - 1/4 tspn
Garam masala - 1/8 tspn
Coriander powder - 1/4 tspn
Cumin powder - 1/4 tspn
Oil - for frying
Salt to taste 

Here is the stir....
  • Wash the cut the babycorn into 3-4 pieces... they should be bite-sized pieces. Toss this into a pressure cooker and add sufficient water for cooking

  • Add salt to taste and pressure cook the babycorn for 4-5 whistles 
  • Once done let the steam go down. Drain the excess water using a strainer and let it si there or a few minutes

  • Add a tablespoon of corn flour to a wide bowl
  • Measure in a tablespoon of rice flour into the bowl
  • Season it with some salt
  • Add your favourite spices. I have used red chilli powder, kashmiri red chilli powder, garam masala, coriander powder and cumin powder
  • Mix everything well using a fork so that the spices are blended well with the flour
  • Toss the cooked baby corn pieces into the flour mix and give it a good stir so that the flour mix sticks well to the baby corn pieces

  • Heat oil in a kadhai and when the oil is hot enough slide in a few babycorn pieces
  • Cook till they turn crisp and remove them when they turn golden brown
  • Serve hot with ketchup or enjoy as is

                                        • Add salt when cooking babycorn pieces
                                        • Cook the corn in medium to high flame and keep stirring it for even cooking
                                        • Adjust spices to suit your taste
