Two of the most popular things to eat in India during monsoon are fritters (pakode) and corn. With my recipe of the day- Corn fritters, you can enjoy both.
These delightful fritters are delicious and very easy to make. You just need some very basic ingredients to make them. And, though vegan, they are loved by everyone- even meat lovers.
If you are looking for one-bite finger food recipes then this is a perfect one. Since it's vegan and gluten-free, most of your guests can enjoy it irrespective of the dietary preference.
You can serve them with dipping sauces like mint chutney, tomato coriander chutney, or any other dipping sauce of your choice. My favorite way of enjoying it is with a cup of Indian masala chai, especially on a cold or rainy day.
Type of corn to use
Use sweet corn kernels to make these fritters. Fresh, frozen, or canned all are fine to be used in this recipe.
Just to give a nice texture grind half of the kernels.
Can all purpose-flour be used in place of chickpea flour
Though chickpea flour tastes the best in this corn fritters recipe, is healthier than all-purpose flour, and is also gluten-free, if you want you can replace chickpea flour with all-purpose flour. However, then the fritters won't be gluten-free.
