Toasty Corn Fritters

This is a lovely snacks perfect for kid's party which I made the other day for my son he simply loved it :)...try this, this simply is the best with lovely aroma of kasoori methi in it ......Instead of eating just the fritters, why  not try it this way, it not only tastes amazing but looks beautiful too ....

1 cup frozen corn

1 onion finely chopped

1 tsp red chilli powder

4 tbsp Gram flour (besan)

1/2 tsp kasoori methi

2 tbsp coriander leaves

salt to taste

Oil for deep frying

6-7 Bread , Cookie cutter I used round shaped u can use any shape u like

2 tsp butter

Tomato ketchup as required

  • Take a bread and cut into roundels using cookie cutter
  • Grease a baking pan, and brush the sides of the bread with butter and bake it at 180 C for 10  min or till crisp and then keep it aside
  • Take frozen sweetcorn in   microwave safe bowl add water  and microwave high for a minute and keep it aside. Drain in a stainer or colander and keep it aside till water is fully drained.
  • In bowl add this sweetcorn now add salt , red chilli powder, onion, kasoori methi, gramflour , coriander leaves and mix well gently . There is no need to add any more water as corn has water content in it , it is enough to make it into a sticky batter.
  • Heat oil n deep pan and when it is hot drop bite sized pieces in oil and deep fry it  and keep aside
  • Take each toast and then squeeze a little sauce over it and place a corn fritters on the top.....serve immediately ...Y not try this for ur kid's party I am sure they would love it :)
