TIPS FOR PERFECT CRUNCHY CORN
- I used frozen sweetcorn. You can use fresh sweetcorn as well.
- Frozen is best since it dont need any cooking, just thawing is good or just microwave for 1 min.
- Drain the corn well before adding flour so it dont get lumpy.
- Toss the corn gently in flour so it coats in a thin layer.
- Shake excess flour so the oil dont gets too floury.
- Fry the corn in very hot oil so it gets very crunchy.
- You can add vinegar instead of lemon juice.
- Serve immediately for best taste
BE CAREFUL WHEN FRYING CORN, IT MAY BURST SOMETIMES
FEW EXTRA TIPS FOR CRISPY SWEET CORN RECIPE
- Use Fresh shucked corn instead of frozen sweetcorn.
- Combination of chilli powder, chaat masala powder, cumin powder and black pepper powder can be used.
- You can use just cornflour and rice flour combination for getting even more crispier corn.
- Add finely chopped capsicum if you wish.
- Double frying corn may help to get crispier corn. Fry sweetcorn for 1 min on hot oil, drain and then refry again in super hot oil till crispy.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
