Tripple Dhamaka with Sweetcorn

It's my turn now...I chose sweetcorn for today's cooking...I made a paste with sweetcorn, ginger, garlic and green chillies and made 3 different kinds of recipes...

Ingredients for the paste:
Sweetcorn - 750gm
Ginger - 3/4th inch piece
Garlic - 4 pods
Salt - 1 tea spoon
Green chillies - 3-4

Take all the above ingredients in a blender and grind it to a smooth paste. Do not add water. The paste looks like this.

Recipe 1 : Sweetcorn cutlets - Mokkajonna chitti garelu

Take a plastic sheet, wet your hands with little oil and make small lemon sized balls with the above paste and shape them into small cutlets. Heat Oil in a wok and when the oil is hot enough, turn to low flame and fry these cutlets until golden brown. Place on a tissue paper so that the excess oil gets absorbed. Serve hot with tomato sauce.

Recipe 2: Sweetcorn-onion fritters - Mokkajonna Ulli Pakodi

Slice one onion length-wise and mix the onion pieces in the above sweetcorn paste. Once the onion pieces are well coated with the paste fry them on medium flame in the oil. Serve hot with tea as a snack.

Recipe 3: Sweetcorn Roti - Mokkajonna chapathi
Mix the above paste with one tablespoon wheat flour and make the dough. Make lemon sized balls out of this dough and using a rolling pin, make the rotis. Heat the pan. Coat these rotis with few drops of oil and cook them on the pan until brown spots appear. These rotis have a subtle sweet taste because of the sweetcorn. They can be served on their own or accompained by any curry.

Here ends my sweetcorn saga...My next dhamaka ingredient would be green peas..hehehehe...I'll come up with those recipes in a few weeks time...
