Mozzarella and Baby Corn Fritters With Chilli Jam


DSC_0444

Hi!
There are days when you feel gloomy and life seems so out of control by the things happening around us and sometimes the weather makes you feel gloomy. In my case both the things happened together and I was not ready to feel lost and sad, so I decided to cheer myself as well as the kid. These days it is mostly the two of us at home so I land up cooking for both of us. Since the kid loves fried food I thought of making some fritters which perfectly suited the cloudy weather outside.

I had read this recipe made by Chef Parag Kanhere recently and was too inclined to try the chilli jam. The original recipe asks for sweet corn, since I am in the process of winding up in this town I was surely short of it but I had some frozen baby corn which I brought to good use in this preparation. 
After making the fritter and jam, while I served the combo to the kid I was pretty apprehensive as I knew he would love the fritters as it had cheese in it but how would he take the chilli jam was surely a doubt I had…..! All my doubts vanished the minute he dipped the fritter in chilli jam and took his first bite, the very instant his thumb was upThumbs up and he said ‘MOM IT’S AWESOME’. I simply beamed with joy as the dual purpose was served effectively… I was cheered up and the kid enjoyed the food Smile.
The chilli jam is surely a quick thing to make and is an absolutely great accompaniment for fritters or chips too. I know it is going to frequent my kitchen. I must thank the Chef for such a star preparation Star.
