Baby Corn Rava Fries

Baby Corn Rava Fries are tasty fritters. The baby corns are given a good coating of rice based masala and then rolled in rava (semolina) and finally deep fried. Hence it is called rava fries. The rava coating makes the fritters very crispy. I got this recipe from a FB group. Generally in Coastal Karnataka this method is followed to fry the fishes.

The baby corns are very commonly used in Asain cuisines. Baby corn is a favorite of ours. Unfortunately it is not available in the place where we stay. This recipe was with me since a long time. I was waiting to get baby corns, so that I can try making it and share the recipe as well. A good friend of ours got us these cuties and I was very happy. I tried making it for the first time and it tasted awesome. It is little time consuming as the baby corns are delicate. But I assure its worth all your efforts.

  • Fresh Baby Corn- 22-24
  • Rice- 1/2 cup
  • Dry Red Chilli (Byadgi)- 6-8
  • Coriander seeds- 1 tsp
  • Asafoetida- 2 pinches
  • Tamarind- A small piece, gooseberry sized
  • Turmeric powder- 1/8 tsp
  • Salt- To taste
  • Sooji/ Semolina- For rolling (as required)
  • Oil- For deep frying


Wash the baby corn and pat it dry using a cloth or paper towel.

To prepare masala: Wash the rice and grind it along with red chillies, coriander seeds, asafetida, tamarind, turmeric powder and salt, to get a fine paste. Add very little water while grinding. The final paste should be smooth and thick. 
Now transfer this thick paste to a large mixing bowl. Start coating all the baby corns evenly.

All the baby corns should have a good coating (be careful while coating as the baby corns are very delicate and there are chances that it will break).

Spread few tablespoons of semolina on a plate and then roll the masala coated baby corns one by one, to get a even coating.

Now deep fry these rava coated masala baby corns, until they turn golden brown.

Once done, transfer them on a paper towel, to drain excess oil. Baby Corn Rava Fries are ready!!

Serve them hot. Above measurement serves 2-3 people.
