Deep fried Baby Corn Kababs & a Special Award

Have you ever come across a recipe and instantly hooked by it? I hear many yeses... I have come across many such recipes and my bookmarked folder is in the verge of bursting and yelling at me!!! I took a pledge long time back that I will stop bookmarking recipes until I try all the previously bookmarked ones. Thanks to my laziness, the pledge was broken the same day.

When Ria posted her empire style chicken kababs, the way she described it coupled with her inviting pics, I wanted to try it instantly. I didn't have chicken at hand but that didn't stop me and I went ahead substituting chicken with baby corns. We had it with vegetable pulao and the combo was spot on. Will try her original recipe soon...

Adapted from Ria's
~*What U Need*~
For batter
APF / Maida - 2 tbsps
Cornflour - 1 tbsp
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1/2 tbsp
Egg - 1
Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1/2 tsp
Lime juice - 1 tbsp
Green chilli - 1(finely chopped)
Red food color - a pinch
Salt - to taste

Baby Corns - 15
Oil for deep frying

How I Made it:
Slice and cut the baby corn into 1/2 inch pieces. In a mixing bowl, whisk all the ingredients under batter section into a smooth mixture. Add the baby corn pieces and mix to coat well. Marinate it in the fridge for 3-4 hours. Heat oil and when hot enough, drop in the marinated pieces and fry for 3-4 mins turning the pieces occasionally. Drain excess oil on paper towel.

Serve hot with ketchup.

Moving on to the special award, a few days back I got an e-mail from Michael Nelsen, Editor of Be@Home blog, part of Become.com. This is what it read:
