Golden Fried BabyCorn Crispies

by - 10:44 PM

P asked me if I can cook something in Chinese on a lazy Sunday. I love Chinese food and would love to order Chinese when we hangout at any restaurant. All I knew in Chinese was that Chilly Paneer and Chinese Noodles. P wanted something different from the regular Chinese that we eat.. I really had to scratch my brain, because Chinese to me revolves around noodles and saucy gravies. My only saucy gravy was Chilly Paneer (On a side note, my Chilly Paneer was a massive hit in my previous company Bank of America and I am visiting someone over this weekend and they want me to prepare Jeera rice and Chilly Paneer... Yay.. I feel elated about my cooking skills)Coming back to penning down the story behind this crispies....I had to put my head to work and think what else could satiate his craving for different Chinese.  My local supermarket brings limited vegetables and I can't expect broccoli, lettuce etc.. It was just like that Sanjeev Kapoor's Master Chef challenge. I was angry both at P as well as the supermarket vendor for their choices. I did write a feedback but that doesn't satiate the challenge in front of me..
Finally I chalked out a menu of my own. Good Heavens!! P liked it. I had Baby corn Crispies for starter, babycorn and vegetable fried rice and vegetables in garlic sauce. Preparing them on a single burner stove is tedious yet times but when the comment comes  out as Amazing. You are relieved and you forget that 3 hours of preparation and back end processing that you do.
I will be posting Vegetables and Garlic Sauce along with Babycorn veg fried rice later.

For today lets munch on Golden Fry Babycorn crispies.

How to prepare:
You can either cut babycorn lengthwise or use them as whole. I used babycorn as whole. Bring babycorn to boil in water by adding a pinch of salt and turmeric. Remove them from water and squeeze babycorns gently by pressing with your hand. Ensure that they are not broken.
Take a bowl and all the ingredients required for batter into it. Add water as required while mixing the batter. Consistency should be like thick idly batter. It shouldn't be too thick that you will be unable to roll babycorns in the batter or too thin that the batter and baby corn separate once you put them in the hot oil wok. Be little cautious in this step and next time I will take a picture for you folks.

Take a heavy bottomed vessel and heat oil as required for deep frying.  Coat each baby corn on all the sides by dipping them in the batter you've prepared.  Drop these coated babycorns carefully in hot oil. Fry them until golden brown and repeat the same process for the remaining baby corns and remove the golden fried babycorns onto an absorbent paper.
Serve hot with Chilly Tomato sauce or Sweet Chilly Sauce.

My Notes:

I have used the batter ingredients roughly without any measurements. You can adjust them as per your choice.
You can add finely chopped onions and ginger to the batter to give extra zing and thereon go ahead with your creativity by adding ingredients as per your choice but without disturbing the actual recipe much.
You can give bread coating instead of this batter. Take 2 slices of bread and wet them with water. Cover babycorn with this bread and seal all the sides and fry them in hot water. This absorbs excess oil and I would'nt prefer too much of oil.

Misc Note--- Guys, I know I am delaying the winner announcement for the 15mins @ Aathidhyam event. By this month end, we will have the winners announced. So stay tuned
