CORN AND PALAK PAKODA RECIPE Palak corn pakoda

  Preparation Time :15 mins | Cooking Time : 20 Mins |   Serves : 2-3

  Palak    1/4 cup (tightly packed)
  Corn      1/4 cup
  Besan |kadalai maavu   1/4 cup

 Palak-corn-pakora
Method:
  • Chop the palak finely. Cook the corn and take out one by one. Else you can use the frozen corn.
  • In a wide bowl add the corn, chopped palak,  rice flour, besan, red chilli powder, chaat masala and salt. Be careful while adding the salt as chaat masala will have salt in it. Sprinkle little water to this and make this into a tight dough.
Ingredients mix
  • Heat oil in a pan and when it becomes hot, keep it in a medium flame. Take small portion of the palak corn mixture and put it in the oil. Deep fry on both sides.  Drain in a kitchen towel. Repeat this for the rest of the dough. Always fry in medium flame,else the corn will pop up and  may splutter on you too.

Notes:
  1. As chaat masala contains salt, do not add more salt.
  2. You can use frozen corn too. In that case thaw it and pat it with a tissue and them mix with the flour mixture.
  3. Chaat masala can be replaced with garam masala too.
  4. Fry in medium flame, else the corn may pop up while frying.
  5. Ensure that there is no moisture in the corn while adding it to the mixture, especially if using the frozen corn.
