2 ears of corn, kernels removed with a sharp knife
3 scallions sliced thin
2 Tbs minced cilantro
a couple minced red chilies
1 large egg
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp kosher salt (less if you use regular salt)
1 Tbs toasted garam masala
black pepper
1/2 C flour
1/4 C cornstarch
1/3 C water + more as needed


1. Add the corn, scallions, cilantro, chilies, and egg into a bowl. Put the baking powder, salt, garam masala, pepper, and flour cornstarch in separate bowl and whisk together. Add to the the vegetable mixture then stir in 1/3 C water until just combined (do not overmix).
2. Heat a skillet over medium high heat until very hot. Add 1/8″ of oil to the pan and drop spoonfuls of batter into the hot oil, using the bottom of the spoon to smooth the tops. Fry until golden brown on one side, then flip and fry the other side.
