  • Now add the maida & the corn flour & mix nicely to incorporate. Do not add any liquid, just mix it to bring it together.
  • Heat oil in a non-stick pan, shape the mixture into small roundels or into fritters & pan fry them on medium heat till it is golden brown on both sides.

Note – Kohlrabi is also known as Ganth Gobhi or Knol Khol.

To make it gluten free, you may use egg as a binder instead of the flours.
