Todays ingredient that i have chosen is Sweet Corn. Sweet Corn is one of the plant based protein sources. So i decided to blog Sweet Corn Pakoda for Day 3 of "Protein Rich dishes" themed Blogging Marathon. I still remember the first time i tasted Sweet Corn Pakoda. It was in my school days when we were on a trip to goa years back. It was a Rainy evening. I got to taste this pakoda with hot cup of Chai. Each bite of it was crunchy and sweet. The juice from the sweet corn was still intactly packed inside even after deep frying. For each bite it was squeezing out its sweet juice and giving out a very different taste. I simply loved it.

- Add in Onion Coriander Leaves/Curry Leaves, Ajwain Seeds, Gram flour, Salt and required water. Mix them.
- Heat oil in a Wok for deep frying. Once the oil is hot enough add one tablespoon of mixture into the oil.
- Cook in medium flame. Once the mixture is golden brown take them out of oil and place them in an absorbent paper for the excess oil.
- Serve Hot Sweet Corn Pakoda with a cup of hot chai.
- Add only required water. If water is less the mixture would be powdery and it wouldnt hold shape while deep frying in oil.
- If the mixture is watery it would absorb more oil while deep frying.
- 1 tablespoon of corn flour and rice flour can be added to make the pakoda crispy. Do not add more rice flour or the pakoda would get harder.
