In a clean bowl combine all the ingredients, except the corn flour, and mix with a wooden spoon. Add corn flour and mix further for 2 minutes. Divide the mixture into 20 equal portions, make round balls, roll them in your palm, and press slightly to get a small round patty. Let it rest in refrigerator for 20 minutes. Heat oil in a deep pan or wok, and fry each patty carefully from both sides until crisp and golden. (Can be shallow fried in non-stick pan) Or coat slightly with egg white on both sides, sprinkle sesame seeds and fry the same way.

Serve with fresh cucumber slices, tomato slices, onion slices, and fresh mint chutney.
