Corn patties

Preparing a good breakfast daily morning is becoming a difficult task for me these days. Whatever I do, I can’t get up before 6AM. I don’t like to eat out, so I prepare breakfast and lunch in the morning. I forget to do all the preparations for it on previous evening, so I start from scratch in the morning. Even though I work without stopping, I take one and half hours to finish both, get ready, eat breakfast and reach office. I try my best to reach office by 7.30. So I am on continuous lookout for easy recipes.

This recipe was sent to me by Aruna. She said this dish was born from the ragda patis recipe, which she had sent me few days ago. She also said they go well as a starter or a snack in the evening. I made them for breakfast and absolutely loved them. These have become a regular from then, as they get ready in a very little time and they have very good taste. Because of corn, they get the very distinct sweetish taste. This can be called as a healthy and very filling breakfast/snack.

1 cup yellow corn kernels
1 cup boiled and chopped potatoes
2 bread slices
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 tea spn grated ginger
1 tea spn finely chopped green chilies
1/2 tea spn grated garlic
1 tea spn amchoor powder
1 tea spn lemon juice
A pinch turmeric
1-2 cups fine sooji/rava or bread crumbs
1 tea spn cumin seeds
2-3 strands coriander leaves

I used chaat masala instead of amchoor powder.

If frozen corn is used, microwave it for 5mins. If fresh corn is used, cook it slightly.
Heat oil and add cumin seeds. When they start popping, add turmeric, ginger, garlic, green chilies and onion. Fry for sometime. Do not allow the onion to become soft. They should remain crunchy. Add potatoes, corn, bread soaked in water and then squeezed to remove water, amchoor powder/chat masala, salt, chopped coriander leaves and mix well.
When they have cooled down a little, make round balls of this mixture and slightly press to give the patties shape. Roll these into rava/sooji or bread crumbs.
Apply ghee/oil to tava and shallow fry the patties from both sides(like vegetable cutlets.
Serve hot with sweet/spicy chutney or ketchup.

Serves : 3-4
Preparation time : 15mins

  1. Hi Shilpa !
    A few months back i stumbled at your blog while googling some dal-palak recipe.was very pleased to knw tht u r an amchigeli .me too.went thru all ur recipes and was quite impressed by the pictures.since then i hv become a regular visitor to ur blog.good presentation !

    great job shilpa for keeping our traditional recipes alive and making them popular!
    I am a corn lover and had tried this pattis few yrs back but while frying it broke.i did not add potatoes .Will surely follow ur recipe and am confident tht it will not break this time.
    Since i too live away from motherland i find ur alternative solutions handy.By the way i am from SK and very fond cooking.So if u want any recipe from SK please feel free to ask.

  2. hey shilpa,
    this looks like a great recipe, I always have a stock of frozen as well as canned corn, will try this.
    You are one enthusiastic cook, to be preparing such amazing dishes every morning!

  3. I love Corn Patties..and your version looks very simple!thanks.I can empathize with you about the morning rush…same here!and my 2 yr old adds to the confusion..but i try and make some preparations the previous night..otherwise the next morning there is a chaos!

  4. Aruna, thanks for sending me this amazing recipe. It is a hit.

    Thanks Soumya. I am happy to know you liked it.

    Maryland, I will be waiting for your review.

    Madhavi, thanks. I try to cook something very filling, many times end up making upma, so love these recipes which take that place.

    Sudha, thanks for your kind words. Please have a look at this site/blog and if you find any important recipe missing(I am sure there are many), please send them to me. Even if you can name the recipes, its a great help. Initially I didn’t know anything about SK recipes, with Aruna’s help, I have posted many of them. If you can remember anything more, it will be great. My intention is to develop an online Konkani recipe book where we can find as many recipes as possible.

    Thanks Richa. I am very lazy cook too :).

    Madhuli, you are right. Little bit preparation in the night makes a great difference. I have to learn that.

    Bee, thanks :).I am so happy to know you like my posts.

    1. Hi Shilpa,

      I tried this recipe today. But it breaks when I put it on tawa, is it because I did not add soaked bread slices as you said coz that might bind the whole mixture. Please let me know. By the way, I really loved it. Thanks so much.

  5. They look so nice! I love corn. I will try this for sure.

    Another interesting, tasty and quick dish to make with these is the Corn Bhel. Steam corn. Mix corn, chopped onions, chopped boiled potatoes, Salt, chaat masala, Mint chutney, khajoor and imli chutney.

    I also like to make stir fried corn. Lightly fry corn in little oil with green chillies. Add salt, pepper and sprinkle some oragno. Top with grated cheese. You can add green bell peppers too.

  6. Hi Shilpa
    I just went thru ur dosa corner .there r so many dosas tht i hvnt tried like potato dosa ,bread dosa etc.will surely try.

    i also found tht one dosa popular in GSB houses is missing .that is udid-maida polo.its very simple and tasty .
    1 cup urad dal
    2 cups maida

    soak urad dal for 4-5 hrs and grind till fluffy (preferably in wet grinder)
    next morning add water to maida and mix till no lumps .pour this into urad paste add salt and make dosas.fry on both sides.
    This dosa is neither thick like musti polo nor thin like rava dosa.some people mix the maida in water previous night itself and add to urad batter nxt day.During summer i refrigerate the urad batter or else it will get sour.

    Actually i grind 2-3 cups of urad dal and refrigerate immediately.first morning i add maida to half the urad batter nxt morning i add sooji . if still there is leftover urad batter i add rice paste the 3rd morning and prepare paper dosa or add idli rava and prepare idlis.

    this really saves time and relieves me of “wht to prepare for b/fast” tension for 3 days.
    Since u too are working try my idea .I am sure u will thank me for tht.

  10. this recipe is really yummy & gud for health also…..corn neways gives lots of iron content which is not only gud for kids but also for adults………my fly luvs this dish & my kid freaks out on corn patties!

  11. Nice posting…
    We were fortunate to eat Corn Pattice a.k.a. Makkai Pattice in Mahabaleshwar (Its very famous snacks there).
    Trust me, if prepared well its very very delicious…

  12. Hi Shilpa

    I was searching for recipe for corn patties and finally i got it here. I am going try the recipe.
    Also i was searching for some north kanara recipes as my native place is Sirsi and i dont know any recipes from there.


  13. hey !!!
    i love your site. its on my favorite list. its really wonderful what you doing here. im a mangalorean and i lost my mom very early. so didnt get to see her make stuff or learn stuff from her either. so there are many dishes ive forgotten the names of but when i see them in your blog the konkani section they bring back memories and not just that i can try them as well. it really means a lot to many what you are doing you here on spaces. thank you for your efforts . and your site is done so well. everything so meticulous. ive tried two of your recipes — the batata wada and today im trying the corn pattice. ill let you know how it turns up. have a nice day.

  14. hey they turned out great. except i added a bit more potato than was necessary i was a little scared that they might burst when frying but if i had stuck to less potato they would have been more corn than potato. hehe. thanks for the recipe. i ate this wonderful pattice in mahabaleshwar and on a rainy day they can be the best thing that can happen to you. Thanks again also i prefer to mix the breadcrumbs in to the mix rather than coat the cutlets. the breadcrumbs tend to brown too quickly and sometimes turn taste burned if they are fried a little longer than necessary.

  15. Hi shilpa ,

    Its good to see you back. how was your trip ?? i am sure you had fun…
    I love this recipe ….this is the third time i m making it.
