3 in 1 Flavored Sweet Corn

Share with friends and family

 Sweet corn makes a perfect ingredient for making healthy salads and starters for parties and get togethers .

We can cook the sweet corn in bulk and season it in less than 5mins just before serving. Sweet corns are very easy to cook and doesn't require any special skills .

I prefer to keep a pack of frozen corn always in my fridge to take care of sudden hunger pangs or to treat unexpected guests. 

A few years ago ,these flavored and tasty sweet corn took by the storm and was a hot favorite among kids as well as elders. There would be small food carts stationed at malls , theaters and many other prominent public places where the vendor would dish out lipsmacking piping hot corn in small cups with a lot of flavors .It was fascinating to see how corn be constantly being steamed in a steamer and the vendor would very efficiently dish out various flavors based on customer demands and hand it out perfectly. 

My favorite would always be desi masala and spicy chilli butter . Both these flavors would be so tasty and the after taste with essence of lime juice will be refreshing.   Today,I thought of recreating the same flavors in my kitchen and these were so apt and tongue tickling for the gloomy and chill weather in my city .

Beetroot corn bites by Preethi is on my cards soon . The recipe shared by her is a must try as it is not deep fried and makes it a healthy and nutritious snack for a guilt free indulgence.
