Corn Pakoda – Sweet Corn Pakoda

February 1, 2016 Holi RecipesPakoda RecipesSnacks / StartersSweet Corn  6 comments

Deep fried Pakodas are always everybody’s favourite. This Corn Pakoda is a lovely variation to the normal onion pakoda. It is a crispy, addictive snack with a mild sweetness from the sweet corn. It is yet another simple snack to be enjoyed during monsoon or any weather for that matter with a hot cup of tea or coffee. I had this Corn Pakoda with hot Masala Chai.. It was absolutely divine!! Is there a better combo than this?!?

Now to the recipe..



[Preparation Time-10 mins : Cooking Time- 20 mins]


  • Sweet Corn Kernels – 1 cup
  • Besan – 1/2 cup
  • Rice flour – 2 tbsp
  • Onion – 2
  • Coriander leaves – few
  • Salt – as needed
  • Chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Oil – to deep fry





  • Take the sweet corn kernels in a steamer/idli plate and steam for 4-5 mins. When u press it with your finger, it should be soft. Let it cool down and take it in a mixer.

  • Just pulse it once or twice into a coarse mixture. Now take this in a wide bowl. Add besan, rice flour, finely chopped onion, finely chopped coriander, salt & chilli powder. Mix well so that all the ingredients blend well.

  • Meanwhile heat oil in a pan to deep fry. Add 1 tbsp of this hot oil to the above mixture. Mix well. Make small bite size pieces of pakoda and drop it in the hot oil. Keep stirring to ensure even cooking. Once golden brown and crisp remove it and drain it in a tissue paper.

Tadaaa!! Corn Pakoda ready!!

Serve hot with sauce or ketchup!!





  1. I have used frozen corn kernels. U can use fresh ones too. Just ensure to cook until soft and continue with the rest of the procedure.
  2. Alternatively u can boil or pressure cook too. Just make sure to strain any extra water using a strainer before grinding.
  3. Make sure to grind the steamed corn into a coarse mixture. Do not make it pastey.
  4. The oil should be medium hot while deep frying, else it will be crispy outside and uncooked inside.
  5. After mixing all the ingredients, make the pakoda immediately. Else the onions will ooze out water and make the mixture watery.
  6. U can reduce chilli powder and add chopped green chillies.
  7. U can use a spoon to drop a small amount of the mixture into the oil. I made small ball sized pakoras to attract u all
