Babycorn Manchurian

It has been ages i had this babycorn manchurian, after a long i bought fresh babycorns from chinese store and prepared out this babycorn manchurian....Lipsmacking appetizier, can enjoy without any guilt...Do you know that babycorn ears are hand picked and corns generally matures very quickly,so the harvest of babycorn must be timed carefully to avoid ending up with more mature corn ears...Baby corn are typically eaten whole as raw or cooked along with other veggies, one of the famous Indo-chinese dish is manchurian and babycorn suits prefectly to make out manchurians..This simple stir fry with bellpeppers and onions tastes fantastic as appetizier, as side dish with cooked rice...Babycorn manuchrian is my family's favourite dish and this dish goes obviously to Shama's Family Favourites..


15nos Babycorns(cut into medium pieces)
1/2cup Rice flour
1/2tsp Baking powder
1/2cup Cornflour
1tsp Garlic paste
1tsp Ginger paste
1tbsp Green chili paste
2-3 Spring onions(chopped finely)
1no Onion(diced)
2nos Capsicum (cut into small square pieces)
2nos Garlic(chopped)
2tsp Soya sauce(dark)
2tbsp Tomato sauce
1tsp Rice Vinegar
1tbsp Cornflour dissolved in water
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying the baby corns
Oil for sauce

Boil water in a pan and add Babycorn pieces and Salt and cook for 5 minutes so the babycorn becomes tender.

In a large bowl, combine rice flour, cornflour, baking powder, salt, soy sauce, garlic/ginger paste and 1 tablespoon green chili paste.Mix well with water to get a batter fo medium consistency.Heat oil in a pan.Deep the babycorn pieces in the batter and deep fry in oil. Drain the excess oil and set aside.

In a flat pan, add some oil and when it smokes add the chopped onions and capsicum and fry only till they start becoming translucent.Now add the chopped garlic,salt, pepper powder and fry for a minute . Add the soy sauce and vinegar and stir for a minute. Reduce the heat and then add the cornflour-water. The mixture will start to thicken, keep on stirring on low heat and when the mixture turns semi thick add the tomato Sauce and then add fried babycorns. Stir continuously for a couple of minute when it becomes soft and crispy, take it out from fire.

Garnish with chopped spring onions. Serve hot with noodle or fried rice or as appetizier..
