Baby corn fritters

Deep fried foods are bad for health. But children like any stuff that is deep fried. This recipe was given to me by my friend Pavitra. I tried it today and came out very well. My kids just finished it in no time.

Baby corn - 12-14nos
Corn flour - 2tsp
Besan flour - 1tsp
Ginger-garlic paste - 1/4tsp
Pepper powder - little
Red chilli powder - 1/4tsp
Tomato sauce - 1tsp
Soya sauce - 1/4tsp
Salt - taste
Oil - for frying
The above ingredients (pepper, red chilli, salt, ginger-garlic) can be added according to taste.

1. Wash and cut the baby corns lengthwise. Make it thin strips.
2. In a mixing bowl add all the ingredients except the baby corns. Mix well.
3. Add the baby corns and toss them well. Keep it in the fridge for 1/2 hour.
4. Heat the kadai, and add enough oil for frying. Once the oil is hot drop the baby corns in them, turn them and remove once they are golden brown.

If you want to decorate it before serving, place the baby corns in a plate and to it add cut onions, corriander leaves, onion leaves, a pinch of chat powder and 2 drops of lemon juice.
Great, I bet you would love to have it to give your tastebuds a chance to enjoy.
I prepared the same batter mix and added bitterguard cut into semi circles. I deep fried them. Yummmm... they were very good. You can introduce this bitter vegetable to anyone who dislikes it. You can also try it with cauliflower. Cut the vegetable into medium size with the stalk and cook it for 5min. Then continue with the above procedure.
