This recipe will be unlike any cutlet you have tried so far -- it is not made of potatoes, spinach, raw bananas or any of the usual stuff! the thai sweet corn cutlet is made from a contrasting combination of juicy sweet corn kernels and fierily pungent red curry paste. If this is not spiky enough, the hot and sweet dip will doubtlessly push this cutlet into the spicy category!
