Corn Cutlets

I read about this recipe when I was surfing the net for various recipe sites. I found this recipe in vahrehvah.com a site by wellknown chef Mr Sanjay Thumma. He has many wonderful recipes with very useful tips . I have prepared corn cutlets in many other ways but when I prepared it as mentioned in the above site they were softer and more delicious as compared to other varieties. Since then I usually follow this method only .  Since these cutlets are shallow fried on a non-stick pan very little oil is consumed .Thus a super tasty yet healthy dish is ready for you. So lets start the recipe :



Ingredients :

2 cups ....................fresh american corn
2...........................onion finely chopped
10 - 12.................garlic flakes
1 inch...................ginger chopped
4 to 5 .................cut green chillies
a fistfull....................fresh coriander
1 cup...............roasted channa daal (bhajki daal/ dale)
1 tsp...................turmeric powder
1 tsp.................garam masala ( I didn't use)
1/2 cup ...............maida
salt
sugar
Oil for shallow frying



Method :

Boil the corn adding little salt and sugar in pressure cooker till soft.
Grind this corn coarsely without adding water and keep aside.
Also grind together garlic , ginger, chillies, channa daal and coriander without adding water.
The mixture should look coarse as in picture.
Add the ground corn, above coarse mixture, onion , salt and sugar.
If the mixture is sticky add little maida so that you can form the cutlet shape.
Shallow fry in non stick pan using little oil .
Serve hot with tomato ketchup or any dip of your choice.
