SO TAKE CARE …
Boil around 2-3 cups of water in a sauce pan. Add corn kernels into it and cook for 2 to 3 mins.Turn off flame and drain water completely.
If you are using tinned corn ..Drain the water from the tin . No need to cook .
Put together the corn kernels, maida, corn flour, rice flour, pepper powder and salt in a big mixing bowl.
Mix well such that corn is coated completely with flour. In case flour is not sticking , add 1-2 tbsp water and mix gently .The corns should be separate from each other yet and well coated with flour .
Heat enough oil in a kadai to deep fry the corn. Once the oil is hot, take corn and scatter into the hot oil. Stay away from oil as it scatters and splashes. To prevent this , cover the pan while frying .
Once the corn is crisp and golden, transfer it onto a tissue to absorb excess oil.
Heat a tsp of oil in a pan . Add chopped onion , garlic and green chilies and stir fry for few seconds.
Add chopped capsicum and saute for few seconds . Add red chilli sauce , tomato sauce ,soy sauce ,vinegar ,pinch of pepper powder and mix.
Now add fried corn and mix quickly .
Serve the Crispy Fried Corn immediately to enjoy crispiest texture.
Method 2 for making crispy corn : In a mixing bowl add salt, cumin pwd, red chilli pwd and chat masala pwd .Mix . Add Fried corn , finely chopped onion , green chilli , coriander leaves . Squeeze lime and quickly toss and enjoy .
Don't keep the oil temperature too high .. else corn will splutter as soon as you drop it into oil .
For safety .. its better to cover the pan with a lid while deep frying else it might jump everywhere .
