I love adding corn to salads, pasta salads or just mixing up with some spices and enjoying as a quick snack. This recipe for BBQ Nation Crispy Fried Corn is a take on the indo-chinese flavours that are added to golden crispy fried corn kernels. I first had it at Barbeque nation restaurant in New Delhi and fell in love with it 😀 So happy that I was able to recreate this recipe for BBQ Nation Crispy Fried Corn in just simple steps.
BBQ nation Crispy fried corn is much easier to make than you think! The only tricky part of the recipe is the frying part. You need to deep fry the corn kernels (coated in corn flour & maida) very very carefully with the lid on. Once the corn kernels hit the hot oil, they start popping up and you obviously do not want them to end up in your eye! - therefore, put the lid on immediately once the kernels are transferred to the very hot oil.
How to make BBQ nation crispy fried corn?
You start by adding a three tablespoons each of maida (all purpose flour) and corn flour to boiled sweet corn. Add about 1 tsp water if the corn is completely dried off - just until everything comes together and the flour mixture sticks to the corn.
Deep fry in very hot oil, cover and let cook. Once you stop hearing the pop sound, carefully uncover and transfer the corn to a sieve to get rid of excess oil - not that it makes it healthy-ish, but still 😀
Prepare the indo-chinese mix buy sautéing some onions, garlic and capsicum in some oil. Add soy sauce, tomato keptchup, chilli sauce/paste and the golden fried corn.
Mix until the corn kernels are well coated with the sauce and sprinkle some spring onions and your Barbeque nation crispy fried corn is ready to serve 🙂
