Corn Vada Recipe / Sweet Corn Fritters recipe / Chola Vadai Recipe / Easy Vadai recipes – Navratri recipe


Corn Vada is one such crispy and perfect tea-time snack. Usually kids like to have corn, my son likes corn to the core. But after being a food blogger, my kids want me to try out something other than corn in cup or salad with corn, so I thought of preparing this Corn Vada. I would say it a perfect #afterschool snack for kids.

Corn vada was something as it was over in minutes, all of us liked it to the core. Give and try and enjoy it with a cup of tea, coffee or a milk for kids. Let me share the recipe…

Taking this to Fiesta Friday #130 hosted by Angie@thenovicegarderner.


  • Corn Kernels – 1 ½ cup
  • Onions – ½ no (medium size)
  • Green chilli – 1 no
  • Cumin powder – 1 ½ tsp
  • Rice flour – 1 tbsp
  • Besan – ½ cup
  • Curry leaves – a sprig
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for deep frying

Do check out the video recipe –


  • Finely chop the onions and green chillies.
  • Wash the corn kernels, take ¾ th of the corn in a blender and blend them well in regular intervals without adding water to a smooth paste.
  • Add the leftover corn kernels and blend it just for few seconds.
  • Transfer the corn dough to a bowl, add onions, green chilli, curry leaves, rice flour, besan, salt and cumin powder, mix them all together.
  • Heat oil in a kadai.
  • Meanwhile take a small portion of dough, roll it to a lemon sized balls and flatten them in between your palms. Continue the same process with the whole dough.
  • Gently drop in the pressed dough to the oil, turn both sides and fry until they turn golden brown. Cook only in low flame so that it would be cooked well, otherwise it would turn golden brown before it gets cooked.
  • Drain the oil and remove the vada.

Serve hot Corn Vada with Tomato ketchup or Chutney and a cup of coffee or tea.

Chicken Sausage Lollipops


Chicken Sausage Lollipops is one of the most interesting and yummylicious dish for after school snacks or even back to home snack. A perfect snack to munch for tea time.

Wonder what to prepare for kids, when they are back home and found a packet of sausage lying in the chiller tray. Thought of deep frying them in a batter with a toothpick inserted inside to hold, which would be more comfortable for kids to munch. Let me share the recipe…


  • Chicken Sausage – 8 nos
  • Corn meal /Maize flour – ½ cup
  • Chilli powder – ½ tsp
  • Garam Masala – ¼ tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Black pepper powder – ¼ tsp
  • Egg – 1 no
  • Oil for deep frying


  • Take the corn meal, chilli powder, garam masala, black pepper powder in a bowl. Mix all these together.
  • Pour in ¼ cup of water little by little and mix them well (be sure no lumps should be formed).
  • Break in the egg and mix them well with the batter, let it rest for 5 mins (the batter should be little thick, so that it can coat the sausage).
  • Heat the oil in a kadai.
  • Chop the sausage into four equal halves, insert a tooth pick from the bottom.
  • Gently roll the sausage in the batter, so that the sausage gets coated perfectly.
  • Gently drop it to the oil and deep fry them for 3 to 4 mins or until it turns golden brown.
  • Drain the oil and remove the sausage.

Serve hot with Mayonnaise and Tomato Ketchup.
