Spicy Corn Cakes

I'm not kind of a snacky person but my hubby he loves to have some when he is back home in the eve.I generally look out a quick ones so that I won't end up at the stove whole eve.

Coming to this cakes they are crispy from out side and soft from inside.
This recipe includes egg but I replaced it with yogurt for my convenience. 

The vinegar dip was too good. I tried ketchup, chili Sauce and etc... But this dip was ultimate.It goes with any kind of snack.  

** This recipes makes 12 corn cakes **


1 cup fresh corn kernels
1 medium onion finely chopped 
1/2 cup mint chopped finely 
1 Garlic clove minced
1/2 tsp cumin coriander powder
1/2 tsp red pepper
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sugar
1/2 cup maida
1/2 cup corn flour 
1/ cup yogurt
1/2 tsp salt (varies acc. to taste)
1/4 cup oil  
*1/2 cup flour for rolling corn balls

In a bowl add all the ingredients one by one leaving yogurt to the last (I used yogurt to mix ingredients).Mix them well.

Take a litlle mixture and roll out a ball with it. Dip the ball in corn flour and make a flat cake like shown in the above image.
 Repeat the same with the remaining mixture. 

Heat a pan with 1tbs oil & place the cakes in a pan. Just add little by little oil as needed to the cakes and fry them both the sides.

*** You can even deep fry them if wanted. I opted to pan fry them so it's up to you :)

For vinegar dip
1/2 cup white wine vinegar 
1/4 cup brown sugar 
11/2 tsp red chili's
11/2 tsp salt

Heat a pan with all the above ingredients. Bring them to boil & allow them to cook for 10 to 15 mins. Then remove the syrup form heat & allow it to cool. Garnish with coriander & it's ready to serve.

Out Come I never expected the combo to be that good. I just couldn't resist licking my finger.
