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…

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.
