corn vada, sweet corn vada recipe - mokkajonna vadalu (garelu)

Sweet Corn Vada Recipe is a quick easy and tasty snack and I love this very much. A slight hint of sweetness from the sweet corn with the freshness from the herbs and crunchy onion bits make the vadas delicious. Also called as sweet corn garelu or mokkajonna vadalu in telugu.

Unlike regular recipe of corn vada, making these with sweet corn is a bit difficult task. The sweet corn paste after grinding will be very gooey. Bengal Gram Flour is used as the binding agent. Bits n pieces of onion, curry leaves and mint leaves further enhance the taste. corn vadas will be crisp from outside and soft and chewy from inside. These fritters work well as starters or finger food or as a perfect evening snack with garam a garam chai during rainy evenings.
In place of bengal gram flour you can use small chunks of bread for binding purpose as bread chunks absorb extra moisture from the sweet corn paste. You can add corn flour also as the binding agent but in this case fritters become more crispy and will be a bit less softy inside than using bengal gram flour as binding agent. Rice flour can also be added as the binding agent.

3. Do not add water while grinding as sweet corn itself will become gooey
4. Now dish out this paste into a bowl, add sliced onion pieces, chopped curry leaves, mint leaves and coriander leaves
5. Add salt as needed and add gram flour, I added 3 tsps of flour to my sweet corn mixture to make it firm enough to make vadas, if your sweet corn is too watery then you need to increase gram flour quantity
