Crispy corns is a simple snack made with corns, all purpose flour and corn starch. They taste very different from regular corn pakoras as we do not use gram flour as a base. They are flavored with garlic, ginger and chaat masala. To give them little twist I sautéed them further in veggies which makes them much tastier.

I first ate crispy corns in a restaurant and did not like them at all. They were very oily and little blunt in taste. I wondered why they were so popular and I still did not like them. May be it was just my expectations with them. So I decided to experiment a little and alter them slightly to a taste that I like and finally I found the right way that makes them less oily, flavorful and more delicious by adding some veggies.

I used frozen corn kernels to make crispy corn fritters. If you do not have it or do not like to use them you can use corn cobs too. Just boil them in water, once cooked drain the water out and let them cool down and then remove the corn kernels with knife. If you are using frozen corn kernels make sure they are at room temperature.

I always have packets of frozen peas and frozen corn kernels in my fridge. I use corns to make veg pockets, pizza paratha, bread katori chaat, baked bread rolls and lot more. Crispy corn fritters can be made in minutes if you have frozen corns kernels in the fridge. It does not need any prep work and your simple snacks can be made in jiffy.

Crispy corn pakoras are complete in itself and you do not need any sides like chutney or ketchup to accompany them. The recipe is very easy. First make batter with corns, all purpose flour, corn flour/ corn starch, ginger garlic paste and add seasoning and water and make small size corn pakoras. To garnish them saute veggies in little oil, add corn fritters and season them with chaat masala and lime juice.
