The Corn Pakodas, apart from being irresistibly tasty, are also easy to make as they use minimal, readily-available ingredients, and a simple procedure.

The combination of grated and whole sweet corn kernels with rice flour results in a perfect texture, while green chillies impart a mild but noticeable sharpness that is essential to balance the semi sweet taste of sweet corn.

Indeed, a perfect snack to have garma garam with a hot cup of Masala Chai !
