food processor, make a paste with the onion, garlic, and cilantro. Add the
corn and process very briefly just to soften kernels a little. Beat the
egg lightly and add to the corn mixture. Sift the flour, baking powder,
ground cumin, and salt into a bowl, add the corn mixture and stir
thoroughly. If mixture is very thick, stir in one tablespoon of water at a
time until mixture reaches a batter consistency. Heat oil in a large
skillet, or electric fry pan at 360F. Using a quarter-cup measure,
carefully pour batter into pan, frying until light brown on both sides.
Serve hot with a sambal, or serve as a side dish.
