A snack that requires a bit of patience but is so unique and exciting that you will thoroughly enjoy the results of your effort!

Unlike most dishes that make use of boiled or crushed sweet corn, here the kernels are deep-fried till absolutely crisp, and then tossed with flavour-givers like ginger, garlic, spring onions and Schezuan sauce to get really scrumptious Crispy Fried Corn.

Make sure the boiled corn is dry before mixing with the flours, and once this step is done you should deep-fry it immediately before the mixture gets soggy. When frying the corn, it might splutter a bit, so move away from the kadhai.

Serve the Crispy Fried Corn immediately to enjoy the crispiest texture.

Chinese Starters like Crispy Fried Corn are great to munch on anytime .

I tried this came out well..I had a query to ask.. In the final stages of mixing the sauted veggies with the deep fried golden corn kernels,the crunchiness of corn is lost ... How is possible way to hold on to the crunchy corns ?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Pooja, Toss the corns only before serving. Also, when you fry the corns , drain them completely on an absorbent paper so, no excess oil remains which might turn them soggy.
