How to make Makai Na Khatta Vada

  1. Grind together green chilies, ginger and 1/2 cup fresh corn kernels and make a paste.Take corn meal/makki ka atta in a wide bowl and add the ground corn paste in it.
  2. Now add fresh whole corn kernels, cumin seeds, asafoetida and salt and mix well.
  3. Add curd and make a medium soft dough(no need to add water,can use some more curd if needed).
  4. Take a thick polythene sheet and apply some oil on it. Place a small ball from the dough and press it with your palm or with another piece of polythene to make a round medium thick vada/disc.
  5. Heat enough oil in a deep pan or kadhai. Add the vada in hot oil and deep fry on medium hot oil till crisp and golden in colour.
  6. You can also half fry the vada first and then refry them when you want to serve.(pic is of half fried vadas,I refried them again)
  7. Serve hot with potato curry, fried green chilies and coriander chutney.

My Tip:

If you want to avoid deep frying then can also shallow fry it in little oil or make paratha.
