Thank you Shivani Chander for this. She mentioned she had Sanjeev Kapoor to thank. So thank you to him too :)

Ingredients :
Babycorn (boiled) 20-25
Ginger and garlic paste 1 tsp each

Oil to deep fry

For batter : 
Maida 2 tbsp
Cornflour 2 tbsp
Coriander or parsley leaves finely chopped
Pepper or red chilli powder to taste
Salt to taste 

Method :
In a bowl, marinate the boiled baby corns in ginger paste, garlic paste, red chilli powder, salt and chaat masala for fifteen minutes. Set aside. To prepare a batter, mix refined flour, corn flour, parsley, red chilli powder and salt in a bowl. Add sufficient water and whisk to make a batter of coating consistency. Set aside. Dip the marinated baby corns one by one in the batter and deep fry till golden and crisp. Drain and place on an absorbent paper. Serve hot with the tomato garlic sauce.
