Vada/ Vadai is Indian fritters made with batter of ground lentils or other foods mixed with spices. We crave much for vadais. But whenever I think of preparing, the soaking time really upsets my mood. But this corn vadai need not require any soaking; can be prepared in minutes once if you have the corn ready in hand. This is so crispy and crunchy; but little chewy when you bite the last bite of the vadai; but that is highly negligible because of its great taste.
Sweet corn 1 1/2 cups
Dried Red Chillies 5-6
Rice Powder 1/4 tsp
Finely chopped coriander 1 tbsp
Finely chopped Garlic 1 tsp
Cumin a pinch
Oil for deep fry
Thaw the corn if using frozen corn.
Grind Sweet corn along with chillies to a coarse batter with few corn not ground.
In a bowl, add the batter and other ingredients. Give it a mix.
Heat oil in a pan for deep fry.
Pinch a small ball sized batter. Gently flatten them in the palm. When hot, add them. Continue the same process for the remaining batter.
Deep fry until brown and done. Transfer to a paper towel.
Serve with chutney or Tomato ketchup.
