Few weeks back Prathima asked for a guest post but I couldnt immediately accept it as I had already 2 in line. So said will get back to her by this month end. But fortunately I could sneeze in time and make this baby corn fingers for her guest post. Thanks a lot Prathima for the opportunity to guest post in your space.I am glad to do it for you.... :)
Ever since the little one started liking baby corn I am trying new dishes with it. This was one of the tries I made few weeks back - It was a perfect starter and vanished in no time. I've already tried baby corn golden fries - no deep fry version. I altered the version to get these crispy baby corn fingers.
1.Pressure cook baby corn for 1 whistle(this step is optional). If your baby corn is a little big, then slit it in the middle into halves else you can use it as such like I did. Set aside. In a bowl add all other ingredients except oil and baby corn. Add little water to make a running paste like shown below.
2.Dip each baby corn in the batter and deep fry in the preheated oil in batches till golden brown.
3.Drain it in a tissue paper to take out the extra oil.
- I pressure cooked it for 1 whistle just to make it a little tender for my daughter. You can skip the pressure cooking step and just proceed with raw baby corn. Also parboiling makes the batter coat well.
- You can cut it into round slices too.
- Adjust spice level according to your liking.
