Blender Corn Tikkis

My corn tikki recipe was created purely with all the leftovers in the fridge. It uses handful of ingredients, spices and thats all. So one day, I was craving for something deep fried and my freezer was out of all the frozen snacks and all I could find was frozen corn. I dumped everything I thought will go with this “cutlet” into a blender and made a very thick dough- batter. Added all the staple spices, shaped them and deep fried it. I served it with basic tomato ketchup. It became an instant hit in the family.

Today, after several experiments with it, I also make chat out of it. Super easy!! Now I prefer to pan fry it, giving it a coating of bread crumbs, love adding something crunchy over it and lemon juice! Lemon juice has to be squeezed over it! I also love serving it with some coriander chutney.

First, blend the ingredients, along with the spices to make a coarse paste.

 

Shape them into patties and dip each side of the patty into bread crumbs seasoned with salt.

 

Shallow fry the patties on low to medium heat. 5 minutes on each side. Be a little patient here. (If you prefer to deep fry, or oven bake, go ahead!)

 

Serve it with ketchup, coriander chutney or as a chat.

To make the chat, just mix all the ingredients and top off each tikki with the mix. Garnish with some aloo bhujia or some crushed spicy potato chips.

First, blend the ingredients, along with the spices to make a coarse paste. Divide the dough into 12 equal balls. Shape them into patties and dip each side of the patty into bread crumbs seasoned with salt. If you’re shallow frying them, don’t make them too thick. Shallow fry the patties on low to medium heat. 5 minutes on each side. Be a little patient here.

To make the chat, just mix all the ingredients and top off each tikki with the mix. Squeeze lemon juice over it.  Garnish with some aloo bhujia or some crushed spicy potato chips.

Note:
1. You can oven bake the tikkis at 200 degrees for 15 minutes on each side.
2. You can make these into cheese corn balls by stuffing cheese in the centre and shaping them in small balls, and deep frying them.
