Rain is one of the most beautiful gift from nature. I don’t know why but it does have a calming effect on you.
Every time it rains all I want to do is have hot coffee with some spicy pakodas, cuddle in a warm blanket and watch some feel good movie with your loved ones!
Today was one of those days, I made some yumm corn vadas, please read below the recipe and try them. This is my moms recipe and I feel even though I am following her recipe to the T, the vadas she makes are always better than mine. Thats the magical hands of moms, everything they touch turns into gold 🙂
Corn 2 cups
Green chillies 2
Red chillies 1
Garlic pods 2 to 3
Cumin seeds 1 tsp
Onions 1 medium
Curry leaves & Coriander fistful
1 tsp Gram flour
1 tsp rice flour (Optional)
Ginger garlic paste 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Coarsely grind corn, chillies,cumin seeds and garlic in a mixer jar, add very little water if needed. Take it into a mixing bowl and add gg paste, gram flour, rice flour, onions, curry leaves and chopped coriander. Add salt just before you are frying the vadas, so the batter will not get loose. Keep it aside for few minutes.
Meanwhile heat the oil in kadai. Once oil is ready to fry take small portion of the batter on your palm and press gently and make a small hole in the center like vadas and drop them slowly in oil for deep frying.
Serve hot with any ketchup or spiced chutneys!
- Making them in batches will brown them evenly.
- If the batter is too loose add gram flour/rice flour accordingly(This happens mostly when we use frozen corn)
- Remember not to make fine paste of the corn, when you coarsely ground them you can enjoy the crunchiness of the corn while eating.
- To make it more spicier you can add Cumin & Coriander powder.
- You can add some corn flour if you want the vadas to be crispier.
