A long wait and my 100th post - Savoury Corn and Onion Pakodas

I know I disappeared from the blogpshere without any notice but now I am back again. Just like a cricket batsman playing in the field waits anxiously for a century, I was waiting too but for some reasons or the other was just stuck at 99 for a long time, one month to be precise. All the time, I was away from this space I was busy socialising, had some guests at our place, so it was a time for fun, good time and good food. All the while I was wondering about what to post for my 100th post. I wanted to do a cake and had baked twice but believe me they were finished before I could click a DECENT picture of it. I wont miss it a third time and will post it soon.

Finally I have settled down for these Savoury Sweet Corn and Onion Pakodas.
They are my hubby's favourite. You say 'pakodas' and he needs these only. They can be prepared in a jiffy and are perfect with acup of hot tea on a rainy evening. Without much ado, here it is for my century on this blog. Needless to say I am elated.:-). I am thankful to all my fellow bloggers and all the people who have visited my space and have motivated me. Hope this journey will go on!

You will need:

1 1/2 cup chickpea flour well sifted.
1 tbsp kasori methi.
1/2 tsp carom seeds.
Handful of coriander leaves chopped.
1/2 cup sweetcorn.
1/4 cup onion chopped.
1/2 tsp red chilli powder.
Salt to taste.
1/4 tsp baking soda.
1 tsp minced ginger.
2 green chilies finely chopped.
Water to make the batter.
Oil for frying.


Mix all the ingredients and add water little by little to form a thick batter of dropping consistency. Drop spoonfuls in hot oil and fry them till they are light golden in colour. Transfer them on a kitchen towel so that excess oil is soaked out.
Serve with ketchup or green chutney.

  17. Good for you to have finished 100 posts. To answer your question,
    No. I didn't get anyone to host it this month and I have been a little busy. So, it is taking a break until I get some free time or someone wants to host it. To be honest I was kind of disappointed with the response.
