Crispy Sweetcorn Pakoda

Sweetcorn Pakoda is a wonderful snack to munch on. If you are a sweetcorn and pakoda lover like me you should surely try this combo.

I went through various youtube channels to get a perfect recipe. When we get lots of options then it is good to trust our instinct 
So here I come up with my own version of sweetcorn pakoda!! At 1st I was wondering what if it dosent taste good as I expect??? But later I thought what ever lets give it a try

I informed my hubby ahead about my trial and also told him to have it whether he likes it or not, And not to make faces after 1st bite etc etc. So the next day I informed my MIL and she was alrite with it. After my completion of making pakodas I must say it was simply yummm. My MIL and hubby both liked it, but yes my hubby also said its heavy can eat only few. With heavy he means dense and filling.

Lets get to the recipe................

Level - Easy
Serves - 4

Boiled sweet corn - 1 cup
Chopped Onion - 1 medium size
Green Chilli - 1 chopped
Ginger - 1 tsp Finely Chopped
Gram flour - 1/2 cup
Cornflour - 2 tbsp
Red Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Hing - a fat pinch
Chaat masala - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - 2 fat pinch
Coriander leaves - 3-4 tbsp
Chopped Curry Leaves - few
Salt to taste 
Oil to Fry 

Take half of the boiled sweetcorn and grind it coarsely in mixer. It will look similar to grated corns do not grind it much  we just need some texture.

                  - In a big bowl add all the ingredients together except oil.

                  -Mix everything nicely by hands to bind it well. If the mixture looks too dry only then add water otherwise sweetcorn has enough moisture to bind all the contents together.
                  - Heat oil in a pan and drop small small quantity of pakoda batter into the oil.
                  - Fry it over medium heat till nicely golden and crisp.
                  - Serve hot with ketchup

It was something new and different, do try it yourself to know the unique taste :)

Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Up side Down Cake Really Means Up Side Of The Cake Should Come Down First
I do not know how it got the name but this cake has been always fascinating me to try it at least once for sake of tasting it.

There were few reasons why I couldnt bake this cake earlier when I learnt baking 
Sometimes I found recipe is difficult and sometimes ingredients like brown sugar or pineapple missing. Finally I located a very simple recipe in which I can use normal sugar as a base coat and pineapple was available once. I had to fight with my mom asking me to give the pineapple for sake of making this cake. Yea I did emotionally triggered her hehe I am sure every children know how to do it Right?

So with the availability of ingredients I finally happen to make the cake during this Ramzan.
But again due to some personal reasons Im Late to blog about this. And now I realized its Eid again so make this and impress your guests. Not forgetting to Mention It was simply yummm. So mind you if you get this fruit easily in your place dont miss to try this out :)
