Truly a blockbuster, these Corn Fritters have a very special texture and taste, which combines the innate sweetness of corn with the spicy notes of ginger, garlic and green chillies.

Mashed potatoes and bread crumbs help to hold these fritters together, and give them a unique texture that is super crisp outside and slightly soft inside.

A sprinkling of chaat masala completes the picture, by elevating the peppiness of this crispy treat. When served with the described Curd Dip, the Corn Fritters taste just perfect.

You can make the mixture for the Corn Fritters beforehand and put them in the fridge, ready to deep-fry when the guests arrive.

Such a tasty fritter recipe with the curd dip. My guests enjoyed it when I served them as a starter last night for dinner party. Planning to make it for my kids tiffin too as a snack. Delicious to make a wrap or burger too using the curd dip.
