Masala Baby Corn Recipe : Kids Special

Vacations are not always meant for lying on the couch carelessly, specially when kids are around and asking for something 'DIFFERENT' to eat after every two hours ;) So is happening at my home these days and it is making me think of tasty yet healthy options for kids. Today I cooked simple baby corn recipe which can enjoyed as a snack or with main meals.  

12-15 baby corns
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
½ cup finely chopped onion 
½ tomato puree
1 tsp soya sauce
3-4 tbsp corn flour
3-4 tsp olive oil 
½ tsp red chilli powder
salt to taste
pepper powder to taste 
½ tsp sugar

  • Wash and rinse dry the baby corns. Cut the baby corn into halves if they are bigger in size. 
  • Make a smooth batter by mixing the cornflour, salt and a few pinches of red chilli powder with water.
  • Heat the oil in a flat frying pan. 
  • Coat each piece of baby corn with cornflour by dipping it properly in the batter.
  • Shallow fry the baby corns nicely by flipping every piece so that all its sides turn golden brown.
  • Keep the fried baby corns aside on a paper napkin.
  • Now heat about 2 tbsp olive oil in another pan and saute chopped onions and ginger-garlic paste till the onions become translucent. 
  • Pour the tomato puree now and let it cook on medium flame for 4-5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle soya sauce, pepper powder, salt and sugar to the masala and stir well. 
  • Finally add fried baby corns in this mixture, mix well and let it cook for a minute or two so that corns absorb the flavour.
  • Serve the masala baby corn either as a starter or it it will go well even with fried rice / hakka noodles/ biryani etc. since the dish is not completely dry.
  • You may add capsicum / bell pepper to the recipe for the indo chinese version of this recipe and saute it with onions.
  • A few drops of vinegar would make the dish tangier.
  • You may sprinkle some chilli flakes and oregano for seasoning on this final preparation. 
Do you also love babycorns? I would love to know your variation to the recipe :)
