Corn vadai is reminiscent of my childhood days in Hyderabad. I learnt to make this evening snack from my grandmother.

What you need

Raw corn - 500 gm

Chilli powder – 3 tbsp

Cumin seeds - 3 tbsp

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tbsp

Fenugreek powder - 1 tbsp

Asafoetida – 1/2 tbsp

Salt - to taste

Curry leaves – a few

Coriander leaves - a few

Refined oil – as required

Cooking instructions

Grind the corn in a blender to make a coarse mixture.

Add salt, turmeric powder, fenugreek powder, chilli powder, cumin, asafoetida, finely cut curry and coriander leaves and mix well.

In a frying pan heat refined oil.

Take small quantities of the batter in your palm or on a plantain leaf, press into small vadas and deep fry in oil until they turn golden brown.

Serve hot with with chutney or sauce.
