*1 tin whole baby corns ( Net wt 15 oz  or 226 g baby corn)
*6-7 small sweet Mexican chilies or 1 small bell pepper.
*8 pods garlic minced.
*Oil for deep frying + 1 tablespoon.
*1/3 cup corn flour (leveled).
*2-1/2 tablespoons All Purpose Flour.
*1 teaspoon rice flour (optional).
*Salt according to taste.
*1 tablespoons ginger + garlic paste (optional).
*1 teaspoon turmeric powder (optional).
*1 teaspoon red chili powder (optional).
*2 tablespoons tomato ketchup.
*2 tablespoons green chili sauce.
*1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce.
*2 tablespoons Soy sauce.
*Chopped Indian green chilies (optional).
*2 tablespoons green scallions for garnish.

*Drain the baby corns & pat them dry with kitchen towel or let them air dry completely.
*When they are dry smear ginger garlic paste + turmeric + chili powder + salt on the baby corns and let them marinate for at least 30 minutes.
*In the meantime prepare the batter for deep frying the baby corns. Whisk the cornflour + all-purpose flour + salt according to taste in a dry bowl and add 1 teaspoon water at a time to form a thick but pourable batter. This step is very important if want your baby corns crispy.
*Heat a saucepan over a medium flame with enough oil.
*Dip each baby corn in the thick batter, evenly coat them and shake off the excess batter and then dip them in the hot oil and just flash fry for a few seconds on all sides. Over frying will make them soggy.
*Keep them on a sieve and let the excess oil drip out.
*Mince the garlic & chop the Mexican sweet peppers or bell peppers. Set aside.
*Heat your wok over a high flame. Add 1 tablespoon oil.
*Gently release the minced garlic. Saute for a few minutes until light brown.
*Next add the sauces. Saute for a few more minutes.
*Add the chopped peppers. Saute for a few minutes. 
*Finally add the deep fried baby corns. Saute over high heat until well coated with the sauces.
*Serve immediately! This way the corn will retain their crispiness.

*The right consistency batter is very important in this recipe. If you are a bit scared to prepare a batter and think that your batter might become runnier than just don't prepare a batter. Take the marinated baby corns in a dry bowl and add the dry cornflour and the all-purpose flour add drops of water and just coat the baby corn very well with this semi-dry mixture.
*Marinating the baby corns with ginger garlic paste and spices is not mandatory, you may skip this step if you want to, but it sure does boost the taste of the dish.
*Toss the fried baby corns in the sauce medley just before serving. If left in the sauce for a long time the baby corns will lose all the crispiness and become utterly soggy. It will still taste awesome just so that you know it won't be crisp anymore. If you don't prefer crispy corns than go ahead and prepare the whole recipe well ahead of time.
*If you don't like hot & spicy food just omit the use of green chili sauce and the chili powder from the recipe.
*If you want this dish as your appetizer just cut the baby corns into bite-size pieces before marinating and deep frying.
*This dish goes very well with plain or veggie noodles or as is as an appetizer.
*Toss everything in a wok over high flame, this will allow all the baby corns to get coated in the sauce super fast so that they don't lose the crispiness and the peppers don't lose the crunch or the color.
