corn vada

I was making corn vadas when the dough turned very watery. To thicken the dough, I added corn meal. This idea stemmed when I saw Chennai sangamam's Unavu thiruvizha telecast on makkal TV. They made thinai mavu pakodas, instead I used makka chola mavu.

Shelled corn ----- 2 cups
Green chilli ------ 2 nos ( add 1 more if you want it spicier)
Curry leaf ------- 1 sprig
Ginger ------ 1 cm piece
Chopped Coriander ------- 1 table spoon
Chopped mint leaves ------ 1 table spoon
Makai ka atta ( corn meal) ---- 1 table spoon
Chopped onions ---------- 1 table spoon
Cooking oil for frying.

Grind the corn coarsely along with green chilli, ginger and curry leaf.
Mix in chopped coriander, mint ,onions and salt.
To bind the dough add in the makai ka atta( not corn flour but corn meal)
Take a golf ball sized dough , pat them and release into the heated cooking oil on a wok.
Flip them in the oil till done and serve with sauce/chutney.
