Succulently fresh baby corn, blanched and coated in a peppery batter, is deep-fried to perfection. To add to the thrills, the crisp corn is then stir-fried with zesty spring onions and pungent garlic, to make a flavour-rich starter that fits perfectly into an Oriental menu. Use only freshly roasted and ground pepper to make the Baby Corn Salt and Pepper, as it maximizes the flavour.
