Crispy Crunchy Corn Kernels
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 crunchy snacks and cuddle in a warm blanket and watch some feel good movie. I make these crispy corn often in this season and they have become family favorite!
These crispy corn beauties are so yumm and are perfect accompaniment in this lovely weather. I first tasted them in Barbecue nation and and there I fell head over heels in love with crispy corn. . The recipe is quite easy to make, just the coating should be perfect as a sticky and lumpy coating will result in lumpy texture which won’t look nice and crispy,else the recipe is quite easy and quick to make
While making crispy corn we have to be very careful while frying as the hot corn kernels often splutter and they may come over on your face and body , so for the safety you have to cover the pan with a lid so the corn kernels will not harm you.
Corn- 1 cup
Rice flour- 2 tsp
Corn flour- 2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Chilli powder- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- pinch
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
For the sauce:-
Green chili sauce- 1 tsp
Soy sauce- 1/2 tsp
Vinegar- 1/2 tsp
Spring onion/Capsicum, coriander, green chilies finely chopped
Wash and boil corn in hot water for 5 mins. Strain and dry corn in a bowl.
Add all the ingredients mentioned under ingredients except the ones under sauce and let the corn be coated nicely. No need to add water, but if the flour is not sticking on the corn then just sprinkle few drops of water. Let this rest for a minute.
Heat enough oil to deep fry in a wide pan. Add a handful of corn in the hot oil. Do not forget to cover the frying pan with a lid as the corn may burst and start to pop out.
They are crispy and ready once they start to float on top of the oil. Remove corn and drain them on paper towels.
In another pan, fry chilies, spring onion/capsicum for few minutes and add chiili sauce, soy sauce and vinegar and fry for another 30 seconds. Turn of the flame and toss the deep fried corn immediately and stir fry for a minute.
You can serve them with any spicy chutney and some onion salad or you can gorge on them even as it is.
