Recipe Notes

After frying the corn, coat them immediately in the sauce and serve.

You can keep the coating ready while the corns are frying.

I have used frozen corn kernels to make this recipe but you can definitely use fresh kernels.

Make sure there is very less moisture in your corn kernels. This step is very important because if there is moisture in the corn, they will stick together and will not come out crispy.

When using frozen corn, just thaw them until they are soft. if there is water in them, dab with a kitchen towel and then use them in the recipe. I like to cook the kernels a bit so that they are nicely softened.

Make sure to cover the pan with oil after adding the corn in the oil. The kernels might burst splattering oil all over.

You can also add a bit of soy sauce instead of water in the mixture to make it even more flavourful.
