Sweet corn in a snack!! You guys, trust me it tastes too good and yummy on these days when weather is transforming from hot to cold. Because cold breeze, windy evenings and chilly weather is what we likely find soon here in UAE. We are almost halfway through November month and excited much about weather transformation. When such weather tempts us towards crunchy sweet corn pakoda, it’s quite natural and genuine feeling. Isn’t it? Usually this weather brings in the joy of coziness and warmth of food. But it also has the tendency of making us sick like kids coughing and sneezing back to back. Sometimes in such scenario, I wouldn’t dare enough to make deep fried snacks though the weather insists me on. So I made this batch of pakoda in advance of peak winter weather. Sounds crazy though!!
Sweet corn seems to be a best choice for me to make kids favorite snack. Because my kids love sweet corn in it’s simplest form too. Cooked corn with some salt and pepper sprinkled tastes too awesome for them to munch on as a snack. So I reserve a pack full of this cute, golden corn in the freezer all the time. It’s such a time saver and handy for ongoing appetite of food in between the meals. When I thought of making sweet corn pakoda, I was all sure of it being the kids latest favorite. And it didn’t let me down!!
Like palak pakoda, all it takes is just 30 minutes of your kitchen time. The sweet corn cooks in hot, boiling water within few minutes. Say 5 minutes flat. Then the rice flour and gram flour is added to get it in dough form. Otherwise the corns would easily fall apart. Next the basic spices, green chilly and coriander leaves make it all perfect pakoda dough.
