Cheese Corn balls

Usually I try to bake what needs to be fried but today I happened to do the opposite:-) Fried something that needs to be baked...well, I guess it is high time I get myself an oven before I begin to overdo this frying act. As part of the Gutsy cook club I had  decided to make cheese corn puffs but as it turned out, did'nt have enough time to wrap it up by the weekend and over-shot the schedule. So, this one is kind of a modified version of the cheese corn puffs adn it turned out pretty good. A quickie for those sudden guests popping in from time to time...

Ingredients:

- 1/2 cup all purpose flour (maida)
- 1/2 cup fresh or canned corn( if frozen thaw it well ahead of making)
- 2 green chillies
- 1 egg white (optional)
- 1/2 cup cheese ( any flavour)
- Salt as needed
- oil for frying

Prep time: 10 mins             Cook time: 4 to 5 minutes per batch

Source: Food Network

Preparation:

- Grind the corn and chilly together without adding any water.
- Mix the ground paste with the flour, cheese and egg white.

- Add salt as needed
- Heat oil in a pan and fry small portions of the mix in low heat.

- Serve hot with any sauce of your choice:-) is'nt that the simplest!

  5. It's definitely a simple yet cheesy yummy snack! :) I guess I will substitute egg white with some butter or oil and use paniyaram pan (in an effort to reduce oil consumption!;) Thanks for this recipe! Bookmarking to try sometime soon...

  6. @DV..if you intend to use panniyaram pan...substitute maida with self rising flour...am sure it will work best:-)
