How to make corn cutlet recipe
1. Boil potato in whatever way you like. I made thin slices of potato and boiled it in a pan with water just enough to cover it.
2. It must be just cooked without getting mushy. Drain it if any stock is left. Stock can be added to soups or given to the kids with a pinch of salt.
3. Mash it well.
4. Add corn, red chili powder, chopped chilies, ginger paste, salt, garam masala(spice powder), coriander leaves(cilantro). If you are not using frozen corn, you will have to boil the corn and then use here.
5. Add ¼ cup powdered poha (beaten rice) or bread crumbs. Poha absorbs moisture better and gives a good crust. You can skip using bread crumbs and poha by blending half of this dough in a blender and mix with the rest.
6. Mix everything well.
7. Divide the dough to equal sized balls. If you are unable to bind the dough well, you can moisten your fingers, knead the dough balls. Another way is to blend a small portion of this mixture in a blender and mix it up with the rest.
8. Flatten them and toast on a hot tawa with a tbsp of oil for each batch. As such these patties do not need much oil to toast. They get a good crust due to the addition of red poha. These can also be dipped in batter made of besan or rice flour. Then coated with bread crumbs and toasted.
9. Flip them to the corn patties and toast until golden.
Serve sweet corn cutlet with green chutney or tomato sauce or any other chutney.
