How to make Andhra Style Makka Garelu Recipe (Corn Vada Recipe)

  1. To begin making the Andhra Style Makka Garelu Recipe, blitz the corn in a mixer without water to a very chunky mixture.

  2. Transfer to a bowl, add the remaining ingredients including the besan and combine to make a thick garelu mixture. Check the salt and adjust to taste accordingly.

  3. Heat oil for deep frying. Once the oil is hot take small portions of the makka garelu mixture, flatten it to make a round disc and slide into the hot oil.

  4. Fry until the garelu is browned and crisp. Ensure you fry over medium heat, so it gets cooked evenly from inside out.
