Ingredients to make corn kababs :
1 Cup boiled/steamed american corn grinded to a thick paste
1/8 Cup whole corn pieces
4 small potatoes grated
1/2 Cup green peas
1 small piece of cabbage chopped
1 large carrot finely grated
1 medium onion diced small
juice of 1 lime
1 tsp ginger
2 green chills
3 slices of bread grinded to make fresh bread crumbs
1/4 Cup chick pea flour dry roasted in a pan
1 tsp chaat masala
1 tsp red chili powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup fresh coriander leaves chopped
For coating :
Cornflour slurry 1 cup
Whisked/beaten egg 1
Bread crumbs 1 cup
Make a stiff dough with these ingredients and use oil on the hands to make round/oval /log shape (any shape which you like) kebabs.
Stick a short skewer into the centre, if making log shaped and roll kababs in the cornflour slurry or beaten egg, followed by breadcrumbs.
Repeat with the rest.
Heat a pot of oil, covering ¼ from the base. To test the oil temperature, insert a wooden chopstick in the centre of the pot and if small bubbles start to form around the chopstick, the oil is ready.
Place a few pieces of the corn cakes into the hot oil and fry until golden brown.
Fry over medium heat to ensure the inside is cooked through thoroughly. Remove and drain on paper towel before serving.
Add any vegetables of your choice to make it more nutritious.
Refrigerate the dough for 15 minutes, before frying to avoid kebabs breaking in oil.
Adjust the amount of green chilli if you do not like spiciness.
Corn kababs taste great when deep fried as they turn crunchy.
