Sweet Corn Vada

I made this vada last week for evening snack. It came out pretty good and the girls liked it. It a perfect evening snack for kids and rich in protein. Here goes the recipe.
  1. Frozen sweet Corn - 1 1/2 cups
  2. Channa Dhall / Kadala paruppu - 1 1/2 cups
  3. Red chillies - 2 (acc to taste)
  4. Green chillies - 1 (acc to taste)
  5. Fennel seeds -  1/4 tsp
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Curry leaves - a hand full
  8. Oil - to deep fry
  9. Hing -  a pinch

Soak channa dhall for couple of hours along with the chillies. When you are ready to grind, thaw the frozen corn and microwave it for 3 minutes. Let it cool. Now take the soaked channa dhall, MW corn leaving couple of teaspoons for later, chillies & hing and grind it coarsely without adding water.  Take it in a bowl, add the remaining corn, curry leaves, salt, fennel seeds and mix everything well. Take a wide bottomed pan, heat oil. Make small patties of the grounded batter and deep fry it till it becomes golden brown. Serve it hot with a chutney or ketchup.
