For the second day of cooking Kebabs for BM#67
, I have a Kebab made with Baby Corn and Cashews. My kids love Baby Corn Pakoda and we frequently keep making it. So as I kebab I was sure it was going to be a hit. They enjoyed it more as a sandwich with bread. The crunch the cashews gave was a nice twist.
This makes a great evening snack for kids and we made sure we didn't deep fry. However, I am sure it tastes out of the world if so. Though I am not averse to deep frying and do it whenever I have to, I think I want to avoid piling up on the used oil. Since reuse of oil has to be avoided deep frying too frequently gets you in a spot.
I always think shallow fry does the same job and most times I pan fry it too. Since I mostly end up making a sandwich too, it doesn't really matter much.
