CRISPY CORN (39)

Ingredients

  • Sweet corn kernels – 2 cups
  • Water – 2 cups
  • Corn flour – 4 tbsp
  • Salt – as required
  • Red chilli powder – 3/4 tsp
  • Chaat masala – 1/4 tsp
  • Roasted cumin powder- 1/4 tsp
  • Lemon juice – 1 tsp
  • Oil – for deep frying

Directions

  1. Preparation: Boil the sweet corn kernels in water in stove top until soft. You can also microwave for 5 to 7 minutes. I used frozen corn, if you are using fresh corn, it takes little longer to boil.
  2. Strain the corn and discard the water. Add the corn to a mixing bowl and add corn flour , 1 tbsp at a time and mix to coat well.
  3. Heat oil in a pan in medium flame and add only 1 corn and if it raises to the top immediately, the oil is hot and now add the corn carefully into hot oil. Do not over crowd the corn as it will not get fried properly, add only the required quantity (It will be bubbly)
  4. Deep fry till the bubbles reduce and the corn turns golden brown (should be crispy). Drain the excess oil on paper towel and add to a mixing bowl. Fry the remaining corn in the same way.
  5. Mix salt, red chilli powder, chaat masala and cumin powder in a small bowl and mix. Add the seasoning to the corn and toss well.
  6. Finally add lemon juice, toss and serve immediately. Delicious crispy corn is ready to eat!

Notes

  • Do not add more lemon juice as it will make the corn moist. You can also omit lemon juice and add 1/4 tsp more of chaat masala.
  • Do not omit or replace corn flour for perfect crispy corn.
  • Consume immediately for the best crispy texture.
