For those who are a fan of starters or appetizers, here’s a recipe that can be a quick fix for your home parties. The Corn Cutlet recipe here, is a delicious dish, crispy from the outside and soft & spicy from inside, which can be perfect to have as an evening snack as well. I have added paneer into this recipe for the protein element which also gives a soft, creamy texture in the inside. You may also add some grated cheese here.
This recipe has very minimal use of spices, yet is full of flavour. The use of corn (maize) flour (makai ka aata) to use as a binding agent gives a unique taste to these cutlets. Also being coarse in texture, it makes the outer part more crispy. However, you can replace this with rice flour in case of unavailability.
Though these cutlets are shallow fried, you can go ahead with deep frying or even air frying as per choice. For airfrying, preheat the airfryer and then fry for 8-10 mins at 200 degrees while turning sides and checking after every 3-4 mins. Make sure to apply some oil on both sides to avoid excessive drying. Savour these Corn Paneer Cutlets hot, with some spicy tangy chutney. It would specially be a treat to make these during the monsoons!
