Makai Vada (Corn Flour Fritters)

Have you heard of Methu Vada? This is a counterpart from the corn family. It's a Gujarati delicacy and my MIL's recipe. Deep fried in oil, this one is a snack that you'd occasionally want just for a change.

1. 5-6 green chili, shredded
2. 4-5 cloves of garlic, shredded
3. A big handful of cilantro, shredded
4. 2 tsp coriander powder
5. 1 tsp red chili  powder
6. 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
7. 4-5 tbsp yogurt whisked.
8. 4 tbsp jaggery
9. An inch of ginger, shredded
10. Salt to taste
11. Corn flour 200-300 gram
12. Some water
13. Oil for frying

1. Mix jaggery with the whisked yogurt.
2. Make a dough of corn flour with ingredients 1-10.
3. Oil your palms.
4. Pinch out small round balls of the dough (1 cm in radius) and then flatten by pressing between your palms
3. Deep fry until brown.

Serve warm or cold.
