How to cook Ukoy na Mais Recipe.

Ukoy na Mais Recipe. Ukoy na Mais is also known as Corn Fritters, another native Filipino street food snack. This recipe has a wide range of combinations and versions to choose from. The original Ukoy recipe is made from “kalabasa” or squash, bean sprouts, scallions with fresh baby shrimps and cooked deep fried. In this recipe, I used Mais “sweet corn kernels”, carrots, scallions, and cheese.

In this recipe I used a raw corn that my brother gave me. It took me an hour to cook the corn, before I make my “Ukoy” and the taste wasn’t good as the sweet corn.  If you want to try this recipe I suggest you to use canned “Sweet Corn Kernels”.  Saves time and energy with a tasty result, anyway you can buy at your local grocery stores.
