  • ½ can of baby corn (9-ounces)
  • 4 tablespoons of All-Purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons of cornflour (4 Tbsp for corn fritters; 1 Tbsp to thicken the sauce)
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Oil (for Frying)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped ginger
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 2 green chilies (chopped)
  • A large onion (diced)
  • 1 green bell pepper (de-seeded & cut in big pieces)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper sauce
  • 2 tablespoon chili sauce medium
  • 2½ tablespoon satay sauce
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Water

Directions to Prepare the Corn Fritters

  • Take out the baby corn from the brine solution. Rinse them under running cold water.
  • Now, slit 1 baby corn in half length-wise. Next, cut the halved pieces breadth-wise. Therefore 1 corn results in a total of 4 pieces. Repeat with the rest of the baby corns.
  • Put all the baby corn pieces in a pot of boiling water. Boil them for 2 minutes, drain and transfer to a large bowl. Allow them to cool.
  • Once the baby corns are cooled, add the all-purpose flour, cornflour, and salt. Mix by adding water (1-2 Tbsp) so that each corn is nicely coated with the flour mixture.
  • Fill a small saucepan with oil and heat it over medium-high flame.
  • Drop the flour-coated corns one by one into the hot oil and deep fry them until golden and crisp.
  • Transfer the crispy corn fritters into a kitchen towel to remove excess oil.
