Corn Manchurian Fried Rice

Its been a while since I prepared a rice dish with an Indian Chinese touch. I had prepared Corn manchurian as an evening snack for Nehal. There are hardly any corn recipes on my blog and I was hoping to blog Corn Manchurian but realized that my hubby had taken the camera with him and hence I could not take any pictures.

I refrigerated the left over Corn Manchurian hoping to give it a make over. On busy or lazy days when you want to spend less time in the kitchen, left overs come to the rescue. Today was one such day and I decided to use left over rice and manchurian to make a quick one pot meal. A flavorful recipe with minimal ingredients using Indian Chinese cooking technique and spices.

    do we grind raw corn or boil it first? Also, what happens if we add more cornflour? as in, ur recipie for the other manchurians says 2tbsps cornflour. so is this recipie,in any way, different than the others?

    • Sailu | Indian Food

      No need to boil the sweet corn, use raw. The quantity of cornflour will depend on the quantity of sweet corn. It helps to bind the mixture.

      • Snigdha

        Thanks for the reply. I notice you mentioned to coarsely grind the sweet corn in the recipie and ur response is contradictory. please clarify.

        • Sailu | Indian Food

          Sorry, I meant, there is no need to boil the sweet corn. Use raw and grind coarsely.
