  • In a wide bowl,mix all the ingredients given under “to batter”. Add water little by little and make a paste like batter.Add the cooked baby corn pieces.Mix well and marinate for minimum 15 minutes-30 minutes.Overnight marination in refrigerator is also fine.Make sure the batter is not thick like bajji batter.It should be slightly thin.( If u make it too thin,baby corn wont coat well.If u make it too thick,the outer cover will separate while u put in sauce.so add water carefully.)
  • Deep fry now if u serve immediately.Else let it marinate & proceed to make sauce.
  • Heat oil in a kadai to deep fry.Deep fry the marinated baby corn pieces turning now & then.Baby corn should be well coated with the batter.Drop them one at a time and deep fry in batches.( If u keep less oil for deep frying,baby corn would stick to the bottom of kadai.So keep enough oil.)

  • Cook till turns crispy and golden brown.Remove in a tissue.If the pieces are sticked together,remove them and set aside.

Note


  • If u want the baby corn to be crispy while serving,make the sauce first.Lastly deep fry the baby corn pieces & add it.Serve immediately.U can also follow this way to get crispy manchurian.ie deep fry the fried baby corn pieces again before adding to the sauce.It will be super crispy while eating. In restaurants they follow this method.
  • You can skip adding corn flour water if u want a dry mixture.
  • Adjust the quantity of red chilli powder as per your taste.If making for kids,make it less spicy.

Baby Corn Stir Fry - Two Versions | Baby Corn Recipes


baby corn stir fry

This is a simple stir fry which goes well for rice n roti. I got this idea from my neighbour. I have given two versions .. One is my version in which i followed the method of potato curry and the second one is my neighbours' version which is purely a south Indian style . Based on ur liking, try any. Both tastes good .. I pressure cooked the baby corn to ensure proper cooking but that step is purely optional. We can just saute the baby corns, cover and cook by sprinkling little water as my neighbour suggested..

INGREDIENTS
  • Baby corn – 8-10 nos
  • Big onion – 1 no (finely chopped)
  • Ginger – 1 inch (-do-)
  • Garlic cloves – 6 nos ( –do-)
  • Red chilly powder / Sambhar powder –3/4 - 1 tsp
  • Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt & water – as needed
  • Lemon juice – 1/2 tsp ( adjust)
  • Curry leaves – few
  • Coriander leaves – few
To Temper:
  • Olive oil / cooking oil – 1 tbsp
  • Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Jeera – 1/2 tsp

METHOD
  • Pressure cook baby corn for 1 whistle..Set aside.
  • In a kadai , heat oil and add the mustard seeds & jeera, once they start to splutter , add onions,ginger & garlic pieces,curry leaves.
  • Saute well. Add little turmeric powder, salt and mix well.
  • Now add the sambhar/ red chilly powder. mix well.
  • Finally add the cut baby corn slices. Saute well for few mins .
  • Add coriander leaves , lemon juice and remove..
Serve hot with rice n roti!!
NOTE
  • Ginger&garlic paste can be used instead of ginger , garlic pieces.
  • Baby corn need not be pressure cooked. Instead it can be sauteed in oil & cooked by covering it in the kadai sprinkling little water in between..
  • Tomatoes can be used instead of lemon juice..
