Corn Cutlets || Corn Fritters

Easy prep, less cook time & delicious

With fresh corn in the house, this weekend snack had to be “corny” 🙂 These cutlets are very basic as they are essentially shallow fried corn-potato patties. I added some regular spices along with onions & fresh coriander leaves.  The ingredients are universal and you can play with the locally available spices. The preparation is simple as both the corn & potato can be cooked together in a cooker. The potato can be mashed completely. But to have some texture, I didn’t cook the potato completely to a mash. Instead half cooked and then grated the potato. These cutlets can also be used as burger patties or even sandwich stuffing.

A few other cutlet recipes are my Poha Cutlet & Sabudana Vada

 

Corn Cutlet Recipe

The cooking tools: Pressure cooker, food processor & pan

Ingredients

  • Corn Cob: 1
  • Potato: 1
  • Onion: 1
  • Chopped Fresh Coriander: 1 tsp
  • Lime Juice: 2 tsp
  • Red Chili Powder: 1 tsp
  • Turmeric Powder: 1/4 tsp
  • Coriander Powder: 1 tsp
  • Ginger-garlic paste: 1/2 tsp (option)
  • Bread crumbs: 2 tbsp
  • Salt
  • Oil for shallow frying

Preparation

  • Remove the outer skin of the corn cob & place it in a pressure cooker with a potato
  • Add half a cup of water & pressure cook. One whistle or till the corn kernels becomes soft
  • Run a knife along the corn cob to remove the kernels
  • Grind the corn kernels into a coarse paste
  • Peel the skin of the potato & grate it
  • Chop the onion into fine pieces

Here we go:

  • Mix the corn paste & the grated potato along with the rest of the ingredients (except the oil)
  • Shape the corn mix into patties & keep them aside
  • Heat oil in a pan for shallow frying
  • Once the oil is hot, reduce the heat and fry the patties in batches
  • Fry for about 2 mins on medium heat & flip it so that it is fried on the other side too
  • Pour some more oil if needed or if the patties have to be more crispier
  • Once cooked evenly, remove the cutlets from the pan. Repeat the same with the rest of the corn mix

Alternate Ingredients:

  • Pepper powder can be used instead of red chili powder
  • Processed/Frozen corn can be used along
