Baby Corn :
Baby corn has a mild, subtly sweet, earthy, and vegetal flavour and is tender and succulent with a snap-like crunch.
When paired with all-purpose flour, cornstarch helps prevent gluten development, which makes the flour coating crispier, and absorb moisture (from the frying and the chicken), which also means a crispier coating.
Black Pepper :
Peppers distinct flavour complements almost any savoury dish, as well as some sweet dishes. If salt helps to bring out flavours, black pepper makes foods more assertive.
