Thai Corn Peanut Cutlets is a quick and easy to prepare appetizer/snack made from sweet corn kernels and peanuts. The distinct flavors of juicy sweet corns and roasted peanuts make this cutlet different from the traditional ones!
Last February, the husband decided to surprise me. Well, he often plans something big but I always find out about it well before time. So this time, he decided to break the news to me weeks before my birthday; that he wanted a vacay in Thailand. That actually was the shock of my life but I was happy to take care of all the planning part – places to visit, things to do, and hostel/hotels to stay. Needless to say, those fifteen days in Thailand is one of the most memorable days in our five-year-old marriage.
Apart from pristine white beaches, limestone cliffs, and dynamic cities, what caught our attention was the yum food. Thai food is a celebration. Hardcore foodies that we are, we gobbled on delicious fried rice, Pad Thai, curries, and desserts. Yes, we were exposed to the abundance of delectable flavors of Thai cuisine. One of the few vegetarian dishes we tried includes this Thai Corn Peanut Cutlet and it was definitely exquisite.
