Crispy Corn Recipe | Crispy Spicy Corn Recipe

Crispy Corn Recipe

Tried this starter in barbeque nation and couldn't stop eating it. Had to forcefully stop our self after 4th serving so that we could taste others ;) 
With curiosity tried replicating it and  couldn't believe ourselves as it came out really well and absolutely yummy. Now this has become a favorite snack at home also.



Interesting facts about corn
There are different types and colors (White, yellow , blue, red, black , multi colored) of corn all over the world. Popcorn, Cornflour, Corn on the cob are made from different varieties of corn. Main confusion would be on the Sweet corn and field corn(Dent/Flint). They are closely related, but they aren’t exactly the same. They have slightly different tastes, and are used for different things.
Field corn is the one processed into corn meal or corn flour, and then used in foods that have corn as an ingredient. Simple examples are tortilla chips or corn flakes.
Sweet corn as name suggests is extra sweet because it contains more natural sugars than other types of corn, its seldom used for any flour.

Important question is which corn i should use for this recipe isn't it ;) Sweet corn tastes better for this recipe
