I am really happy and excited to be a part of this event with all my blog hoppers and enjoying it to the core. This week i was assigned to Edible Entertainment by Kavi. I totally loved her blog for her writing and recipes. She has all variety of recipes from all cuisines. I wanted to try some bakes from her space but i lack some stuffs so decided to make this easy and yummy Sweet Corn Dumplings. I never tried any snacks or fritters using sweet corn and the recipe also sounds more interesting. So i tried her sweet corn dumplings with simple alterations and totally loved it.For my kids i deep fried and for me n my H i pan fried them in to Tikkis. Both were awesome and we loved it a lot. My boys loved it a lot and this really a kid's loving recipe.Thankx Kavi for this yummy recipe. Now to the recipe,
