Sweet corn tikkies

These sweet corn tikkies will certainly be a hit with young and old alike. My heartfelt thanks to my friend Jayanti Mohan who shared this recipe with me. These double up as a snack or as an accompaniment to a meal. Serve them hot with either mint chutney or Tomato ketchup.


1 cup sweet corn kernels

1/2 of a capsicum chopped fine

2 green chillies

1 inch piece of ginger

5 cloves of garlic

1 tsp Cumin seeds


2 tbsps finely chopped coriander leaves

Rice flour to bind the dough

Oil to fry the tikkies.


Tip the cumin seeds, green chillies, ginger and garlic into the mixer jar. Grind it to a coarse paste. Add the corn kernels and run the mixer in pulse mode, taking care to see that the kernels are roughly crushed. Be careful not to run the mixer continuously as the corn kernels easily turn into a paste. Drop the coarsely ground mixture into a bowl. Add finely chopped capsicum, coriander leaves, salt and enough rice flour to bind it into a dough to make tikkies. Pinch a little of the dough and flatten into tikkies or any desired shape. Heat oil in a pan. Drop in the tikkies three at a time and fry on a medium flame till they turn golden brown and crisp. Serve hot with mint chutney or Tomato ketchup. I always serve such hors d’oeuvres with my All purpose chutney. Recipe link to it is given below.

This proportion makes around ten tikkies.
