My kid loves baby corn a lot! So I am always in search for recipes using baby corn. I have tasted baby corn manchurian in restaurants and always wanted to try at home! When I googled for images,I got attracted by the picture of Nag’s Baby corn Manchurian. So I decided to try and she too have adapted the recipe from her sister,so double the assurance. I already once have tried Gobi manchurian and today I tried the baby corn version. Since it was tasting awesome,I thought I will have this recipe in my blog too..:) Since I wanted my baby corn in a softer side,I just pressure cooked it till 3 whistles. Other wise I followed her recipe,other than few measures that I changed according to my taste. I did used a sprig of cilantro leaves,since I like it that way.
Baby corn Manchurian recipe
Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook time: 20 mins | Serves: 3
Maida/all purpose flour
Ginger garlic paste
Red chilli powder
For deep frying
Ginger garlic paste
Green chillies (optional)
Red chilli powder/pepper powder
1 tsp( I used red chilli powder here)
2 tsp ( Use more if u need)
1 tsp dissolved in 1/2 cup water
Mix cooked baby corn,salt,redchilli powder,ginger garlic pate and the flours,with sufficient water,the corn should be coated well with the batter. Deep fry till golden brown and keep aside.
Cut onion,capsicum into cubes or length wise as per ur wish. Chop the coriander leaves and spring onion.( Use the bottom part of spring onion when u fry onion). Heat a broad pan with oil and add ginger garlic paste followed by onion,green chillies and fry till onion turns transparent and then add capsicum and fry for a minute.
Add the sauces,salt,red chilli powder and fry for a minute in high flame.Add the fried baby corn with chopped coriander leaves and spring onion and mix well.
Now add the corn flour dissolved in water in a sprinkled manner and stir well,till you get a juicy baby corns covered in this sauce evenly.
Do not add more than 1 tsp of corn flour and 1/2 cup water, if corn flour is added more, it will turn soggy.
You can add a tsp of lemon juice along with sauces for a tangy twist.
Be generous adding coriander leaves, as it lends a great flavour.
I used to pressure cook before, but then I found its not necessary, so when I updated this recipe, I skipped that step.
Also, I forgot to add red chilli powder in step 3 when i updated the step wise pictures.
Decorate with spring onions,chopped and enjoy as a starter or side for fried rice!!
