corn pakora or corn fritters

corn pakora or corn fritters is a regular snack i make during monsoons.

whenever i make these crisp fried snacks, i have always added boiled corn kernels. the fritters are made with besan or gram flour. so they are gluten free if you don’t add asafoetida.

you can also use tinned corn to make these. the pakora can be made with sweet corn or regular corn. at home, the preferences are always for sweet corn. i served these corn pakoras with mango chutney. a cup of hot tea will also go very well along with these pakoras.

if you love sweet corn at home, then apart from these pakoras, you can also make corn sandwich, corn chaat or sweet corn soup.

Hi

Thank you for recipe. It was Simple yet very delicious.

I am just beginner in cooking. So I just want to share my experience (in reality confusion). As you have specified ¼ tsp fennel powder (optional), I used it but get slightly bitter test. Secondly, it was not as crunchy as yours looked in photos. It would be my pleasure to receive your valuable comments on same.

Thanks a lot for giving me yummy experience as beginner like me.

bhumika, fennel powder is not bitter but it gives more of sweet taste.the pakora has to be fried well on the right heat/temperature and then it will become crunchy. the oil should not be too hot or cold.
