SWEET ‘N’ SOUR BABY CORN


Fried rice served,is never complete without a

sweet’n’sour dish !

Today it’s a baby corn, pineapple dish . I always

love the sweet and sour with pineapple ,if not

with orange juice ! I do not use soy sauce or aji-

no -moto in any recipe ,instead add fish sauce

or oyster sauce in minute quantities.

If you love soya sauce,then I have given the

option for it in my recipe .

The baby corn is first dipped in batter ,fried,

and added to the prepared hot sauce .

Moving to the recipe now

For the batter

Ingredients

1 egg

1/4 tsp baking powder

2 tbsp flour

salt

Oil for frying

Method

Separate the egg white from yolk,and beat

the egg white stiff.

Add baking powder to flour , and mix in the

rest of the ingredients .

If needed add 1 tbsp water.

Dip and fry to a golden brown colour.
