How to make Sweet Corn Cutlets
Firstly, let us make a coarse powder of the sweet corn. Peel the potatoes and mash them thoroughly. Mix mashed potatoes, sweet corn, capsicum, ginger, green chillies, green coriander, half of the bread crumbs and salt (save 2 pinches of salt, it ill be added to the flour mix) thoroughly. The mixture is ready to make cutlets.
Add little water to the flour and stir till all lumps disappear. Add some more water and prepare a thin flour mix (4-6 tbsp water in 2 tbsp flour).
Take some cutlet mixture in your hand, give it an oval or round shape. Dip this cutlet in the flour mix, immediately wrap the cutlets evenly in bread crumbs. Similarly make the remaining cutlets. Sweet Corn Cutlet can be fried in oil or on a flat pan with less oil, either way can be followed.
Shallow Fried Sweet Corn Cutlets - Heat a non-stick pan. Pour 2-3 tsp oil in the hot pan and spread all over. Place the cutlets on the pan to cook. Add little amounts of oil all around the cutlets. When the lower side turns brown turn the cutlets over. Fry the cutlets till they turn brown on both sides too. Sweet corn cutlets are ready.
Deep Fried Sweet Corn Tikki Cutlets - Pour oil in a pan and heat. Put 3-4 cutlets or as many fit in the pan. Fry cutlets by turning them over from time to time till they turn brown. Similarly fry all the cutlets and take them out.
