Corn vada recipe
Whenever I buy corn ( Cholam in Tamil, Makai in Hindi) from the market, I make either corn cheese balls or cup corn for Raksha . This time, I tried Corn vada/corn fritters for a change. I browsed for the recipe and found Andhra style Corn vada ( Known as Mokkajonna Garelu/Vadalu in Telugu) & corn fritters recipe with mild variations in method & ingredients. I just combined both the recipes and made this South Indian sweet corn vada. It came out really well with crispy exterior and soft interior. Raksha and Sendhil loved it very much. Its a kids friendly tea time snack recipe.Ugadi festival is nearing. If you have plans to make any vada recipe, do try this one for a change.Your kids at home during this summer vacation would ask for more and moreWinking.But remember, to enjoy its best taste, you should serve and eat it hot.Ok,Lets see how to make this yummy, crispy sweet corn vada recipe !

    • For variations, you can grind raw,unboiled corn with spices and make vada.In that case, do not add whole corns. Just grind the entire 1 cup of corn kernels. As I had boiled corn in hand, I changed the original recipe.( Andhra style recipe calls for grinding raw corn)

  • Stand a feet away because some whole corn may burst. Cook both the sides in medium flame till onion in the vada turns golden brown. Do not wait for all the bubbles to cease. ( Some whole sweet corn may tend to burst when it cooks inside the oil. So do not stand very near to the kadai while deep frying). Remove from the oil and drain in a tissue paper.Enjoy eating hot with tomato ketchup!
