Corn Pakora

This is great afternoon snack. Its very easy to make and incredible in taste. Its very hard to find white corn in US. Usually, local ranch markets have fresh white corn on a cob. This can also be made with yellow corn, but it will have a little sweet taste which can be compensated using extra masala mixture.

  • 1 tbsp Garlic, chopped
  • 1 tsp Ginger, grated
  • 2 tsp Green Chili, finely chopped

  • Asafoetida, pinch
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for frying

  • 1 tsp Red Chili
  • 1 tsp chat Maasala
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
