                Crispy Baby Corn Chili,is a very delicious,spicy and easy recipe - works perfect as appetizer and great for potlucks if you are out of ideas!

A new makeover for my famous post for vegetarian lovers....Crispy Baby Corn Chili !

Well,to be frank,I had hardly tasted Baby Corn,until recently at a party when I tasted a nice crunchy version of it,I was really taken aback and wanted to try more recipes with it.
This version of crispy Baby Corn is best,when prepared freshly and served me you will finish it in no time.

This recipe is very easy and very tasty, I did a deep fry version,you can fry in air fryer to make the recipe healthy.Try shallow fry too or even bake them and see.
This would be great fit for parties as appetizer / starters and even as finger food for potlucks.

I regularly get Baby Corn these days and somehow so love it that these Baby Corn spicy and crispy Chili is a regular. I also make pizza,sandwich,roll with these!
The way have presented this makes one feel that this is gravy or something to be eaten with rice or bread,but no,serve each baby corn with a toothpick inserted to make it finger food or just serve few baby corn chili to make them appetizers, these wonderful either ways.

I have many appetizers / starter recipes shared on my website. Check out this for more options Appetizers and Under30minsRecipes.

Coat all the Baby Corn pieces with the batter.

  • Serve immediately after preparing.
  • Goes very well with noodles or fried rice too.
  • Adjust spices as per your taste.
  • The batter to coat the Baby Corn pieces should be such that it should not be very thick coating nor it should be runny.
  • When fried, the corn pieces should be having a nice coating of batter enough to give you the crisp feeling.
  • I did a deep fry version of this dish. You can use air fryer or bake the pieces too.
