Corn Pakoda with step-by-step photo and video recipe.

This quick evening snack is prepared by grinding sweet corn along with few spices and then deep fried till golden brown and crisp.

I come from a Punjabi family, married to a Jain family. Punjabis are known for making pakodas using everything. On the contrary I have been eating more pakora variety at my in-laws than at my Mom’s home.

My MIL makes pakoda or bhajji with every vegetable you can think of. I have learnt this corn pakoda recipe from her. We call it bhutte ke pakode or corn bhaji.

This is an easy and quick recipe of pakoda which makes for a great tea time snack. It is healthier than any packaged or junk food like biscuit or chips which we often serve during tea time.
