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

Standard

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…

  • 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.

Fruit Samosa

Standard

Here comes a yummilicious, healthy and quick snack perfect for my #afterschoolsnack collection. Just like that thought why we don’t stuff something with fruit in samosa, as my whole family likes custard to the core, induced fruits to the custard and later stuffed it to the samosa.

I was little scary for the outcome, because my kids would kick me off if I play with the custard as they love to have it as such. But the outcome was fantastic, wonderful, beautiful, yummilicious and … Give a try, a very simple and easy snack when you have samosa patty ready and the custard ready at your refrigerator.

As I have started uploading my YOUTUBE videos in that excitement, I got to focus more on video and totally forget about clicking step by step pictures. But don’t worry I would say that my video would more helpful for everyone. Let me share the recipe…
