Cook Time15 minutes
Course: Snack
Cuisine: Indian, Thai
Servings: 15 fritters


  • 2 cups Sweet corn kernels frozen
  • 3 tablespoon All purpose flour
  • 1.5 tablespoon Rice flour
  • Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Black pepper powder
  • Oil for deep frying

To grind coarsely

  • 4 Shallots small onions
  • 2 Bird's eye chilli or green chilli
  • 3 Garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon Coriander leaves chopped
  • 1 Coriander root optional


  • Place the corn in a microwaveable bowl with lid and cook covered for 4 minutes in high or as per instructions in the cover of the frozen corn. No need to add water.
  • Stir in between for even cooking. If using fresh corn, then you can add 2 tablespoon of water.
  • Grind the items in the table “To grind coarsely” with 2 tablespoon of water.
  • Mix cooked corn (cooled down), ground item, pepper powder, both flours, salt with a tablespoon of water if needed.
  • The consistency should be like a vada batter. Adjust flour or water to get the consistency right.
  • Heat oil in a kadai, wet you hands with little water and make patties and drop carefully in the hot oil. The flame should be medium when you drop the fritters.
  • Make sure the oil not too hot, as it will make the corn pop and its dangerous as the oil may spill.
  • You can also spoon the corn mixture to oil, so if you want you can adjust the consistency accordingly.
  • Cook on both sides for total 4 minutes in medium flame, flipping to ensure even cooking. Cook until its golden in colour.
  • Make sure you stand a bit far, in case the corn pops in the oil, for safer side. Fry 3-4 per batch and drain over paper towels.


  • Make sure to cook the sweet corn in closed container to ensure retain its moisture.
  • You can also steam it, if you don't have microwave.Corn should be cooked properly to avoid popping in the hot oil.
  • Oil should not be fuming hot at any point, just make sure to higher and lower  accordingly as there are chances of popping.
  • Any way, one or two corn per batch will pop, so make sure you stand at safe distance while the fritters are getting cooked.
  • Also there should be enough batter to bind and coat the corns.Use a deep frying pan.
  • I used coriander root alone while grinding, as this is a Thai recipe and asked for it, but we can use coriander leaves alone and I tried that way too, it was nice.
