Corn Pakoda Recipe | How to make sweet corn pakoda

For making corn pakoda, I have used american sweet corns. But you can use Indian desi corn aka makai or bhutta. You can also use canned corn kernels. I bought a whole bunch of corns from Costco. I usually like to have plain boiled corn. But two days ago, it was raining and hubby demanded for corn pakodas. It is ok to indulge once in a while.

This recipe is my mom’s recipe. These corn pakoda are slightly different than other pakoras I make. Yogurt is added in the batter. It makes very soft and fluffy pakoda. The texture is not crispy like onion pakoda or rice pakoda.

If you are Jain then skip the ginger in the recipe.

5) Add salt, sugar, turmeric powder and ½ cup of besan.

6) Stir well. If the batter is too thin then add little more besan. The consistency of the batter should be medium (not too thin, not too thick).
