Baby Corn recipes are not so common for me. Most of the time I use baby corn in fried rice recipes and it is the way we use baby corn. But, recently, I wanted to try different recipes with baby corn and this is my first adventure. It is deep fried baby corn.
This deep fried baby corn recipe is really easy to prepare and it is a no brain recipe. However, in order to have an eye pleasing platter you need to take care of deep frying.
