Corn Vada - Cooking for Kids Event(CFK)



Corn is a good source of Fiber and Folate which can be used fresh, frozen or canned. It is good for skin care, boosting nervous system, digestion, and maintaining low cholesterol levels.It is also rich in proteins and carbohydrates.
Even though it is high in fiber it is hard to digest. But the insoluble fiber in it tackles the common digestive ailments (like constipation and hemorrhoids) by absorbing water.My recipe using corn is an easy and well known Corn Vada which can be served with ketchup or by itself.

Sharmi of Neivedyam is hosting Cooking For Kids Event and this is my first recipe for any event like this :). Hope kids will like this delicious and healthy recipe.

Serves 2-3 people
CookingTime 15-20 mins

Ingredients :

Corn - 1 cup fresh or frozen
Dalia - 1/2 cup
Garam Masala - 1/4 tbsp
Coriander leaves chopped - 1/2 cup
Green chillies -2 (optional)
Ginger Garlic paste- 1/4 tbsp
All purpose flour/Maida- 1/4 cup
Jeera/Cumin seeds 1/2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil for Frying 2 - 3tbsp

    Method :
    1. First, in a grinder jar add dalia, garam masala, ginger garlic paste, chopped coriander leaves, cumin seeds and make a dry powder.
    2. Then add the corn, salt to the above mixture. Grind again roughly to get a coarse mixture.
    3. Put some maida or all purpose flour in a plate.
    4. Take this mixture into a container. Take small amounts of the mixture and make balls of them. Then press them gently to look like a round shape.
    5. Now place each one in the maida and dust roughly on it.(not much)
    6. Once you are done dusting the patties with maida, heat oil in a nonstick pan and shallow fry them turning them for every 3-5 mins until they are fried.
    7. Place them on a tissue paper for absorbing excess oil.
    8. Serve hot with ketchup or by itself.
