Sweet Corn Vada Recipe is an authentic Telangana recipe made with corn kernels. It is one of the best healthy Snack recipes for your child.
Mokkajonna Vada tastes great when they are hot. One can find crispiness from outside and soft and chewy having spicy and sweet flavor from inside.
I said this recipe can be prepared in both spicy and sweet variation. If you want to make spicy, Indian corn suits well but if you want to go with sweet you can opt sweet corn.
Andhra people believe it’s best to use desi corn as they are good for health. And they prefer spicy rather than sweet Vada. They eat it as an evening snack along with tea.
