Make a batter with plain flour, corn flour, pepper powder, salt & water (should be of a dropping consistency).
Add a pinch of baking soda. (Alternately, instead of adding baking soda, make the batter with liquid soda.)
Heat oil; dip each piece in batter & deep fry.
Heat 1 tbsp in another pan, add crushed garlic, fry till fragrant and add spring onion & capsicum.
Sauté well & add the chilli paste, soy sauce & vinegar.
Add sugar & salt to taste.

Coat well with sauce & serve.
If serving for a party, keep sauce & fried baby corn ready & toss both together only before serving, otherwise it will become soggy.
