Baby Corn should be blanched only 60%. To check if it is cooked, prick the Baby Corn with the fork. Over cooked Baby Corn becomes soft and mushy soon after it is fried.

To freeze the cooking process, pour some cold water on the blanched Baby Corn and let it rest for 5 mins.


The batter should be made thick, so, add very little water. When the Corn is dipped in to the batter, it should be thickly layered/coated and when fried it will turn into golden brown and comes out crispy. Baby Corn cut into 1.5 inch pieces is the right size.


Toss the Corn on a high flame to get a nice flavour.

Add the Sauces when they are still watery, keeping the stove on a high flame, so that the Sauces get absorbed by the Corn completly. Continue to toss the Corn on a high flame so that the Corn does not become soft immediately after frying.
