On the occasional days I crave my deep fried pakoras (fritters) and they are so quick to make! As I had some excess babycorn, I decided to make this quick snack for my evening meal. I am usually not a big fan of babycorn but do prefer them in this form than in curries and thought that will be a change from the usual onion and potato pakoras that I mostly eat. This turned out to be satisfying and tasty.
