Author Notes: Deep fried corn bread. How could anyone not love it? That's what I was thinking as I was pondering a way to alter a pakora recipe into something "boyfriend friendly." Boyfriend friendly recipes often resemble kid friendly recipes in that they can't be too spicy, occasionally hide vegetables with a yummy sauce, and are always made more palatable by the addition of ketchup and/or cheese. This recipe ended up to be nothing like pakoras at all, but it's really good. alliedoesstuff

Serves: 4

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup corn meal
  • 1/4 cup gram flour (also known as garbanzo or chickpea flour)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2-3/4 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen and defrosted corn kernels
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • oil for frying (I prefer sunflower oil)
  • sweet chili sauce to serve
  1. Mix together the dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl with a whisk.
  2. Beat the egg with 1/2 cup milk. Add the liquid to the batter and stir well. Add additional milk, one tablespoon at a time, if needed in order to reach the desired consistency. You want a batter about the thickness of a dense muffin batter.
  3. Add the corn, onion and garlic. Stir until combined.
  4. Heat oil for frying in a large wok. Oil is ready when a small drop of batter dropped into the wok instantly starts bubbling. Drop teaspoons of batter into a wok oil. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side or until evenly browned. Drain on paper towels. Keep in a warm oven until all fritters are done.
  5. Serve with sweet chili sauce or condiment of your choice.
