Corn Bhel

Bright yellow hued Corn Cobs are in season. We both love this easy evening tea time snack - Corn Bhel. This was the popular to-die-for tea time snack prepared by Mom to feed a mighty gang of all kids, my friends, their friends, friends of friends, occasional visitors et al. Indeed, a kid friendly recipe.

This is a simple recipe with loads of nutrition, high in fibre and with Sev and Coriander leaves, the street food version of Bhel is born.

Cooking time: 10 minutes
Preparation time: 5 minutes

Sweet Corn (frozen or fresh) - 2 cups
Onions (minced) - 1/2 cup
Tomatoes (minced) - 1/2 cup
Ginger paste - 1/2 teaspoon
Garlic paste - 1/2 teaspoon
Green Chillie (minced) - 1 teaspoon
Red Chilli powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Ghee/ Oil

For Garnish -
Coriander leaves (minced) - 3-4 strands

Thaw the Corn at room temperature and microwave for 2 minutes till the corn kibbles are partially cooked. Heat oil/ghee in a deep dish, heavy bottomed pan. Add Onions, Green chillies and saute well. Add chopped Tomatoes and Ginger-Garlic paste as well. Add the spice powders and adjust salt level. Once the masala is completely cooked, add Corn and mix well. Cook and simmer for 5 more minutes and turn off the flame.
Plating: Take a ladle full of this cooked mixture on a plate, garnish with thin Sev and Coriander leaves. Serve hot.
