Corn has been growing in India for more than thousand years, but it was revolutionized as a coarse grain crop when Europeans arrived.
There are unlimited recipes floating around the internet. There is always something new and interesting to make with corn.
I need not mention the health quotient of corn, we all know about it.
My childhood years are full of memories of mom roasting or steaming corn for our evening snack 🙂 and our argument over- that it’s not sour enough or spicy enough 😉
To feed your food finicky teenager, innovation in the kitchen is a must.
Corn kebabs are an interesting twist to the corn fritters. They can be baked, pan fried or deep fried. This is a pan fried version. 🙂 and easy to make.
Here’s what i did………..
1 cup – sweet corn
1 nos – medium sized potato (boiled and grated)
1 tbsp – cheddar cheese (grated)
1/2 tsp – green chili (finely chopped)
1/2 tsp – grated ginger
1/4 tsp – pepper powder
pinch of garam masala (Indian all spice)
1 tsp – fresh chopped coriander and mint leaves
salt to taste
oil to shallow fry
Put the corn through the food processor. Mix all the ingredients with the corn.
Shape them into kebabs. Be innovative with the shape just for fun. Here i have used a square cookie cutter.
Heat oil in a non -stick pan and shallow fry the kebabs till crisp and brown both sides.
Serve with dips or chutney. Here i had served it on a bed of crunchy, lemon flavored bell pepper and onion salad.
Happy cooking !! 😉
Cheers !!! 😀
