Celebrate Monsoons with Yummy Sweet Corn Recipes

Hi folks. Here we are enjoying the Monsoons. In fact we Indians, celebrate each season with much enthusiasm. We have so many ways to celebrate them-festivals, songs, dances and of course food. 

Monsoon is celebrated as we get refreshed with the showers after a long hot and dusty summers. The rains bless us with not only, cool climate but also the much required water filling up our lakes, rivers and other water bodies. India being predominantly an agri-based country, our farmers start their activities.

Well whether in cities or towns or in villages, everyone needs some hot, healthy food which is also very yummy. Moreover, if you can make it easily with simple ingredients then it is worth noting down and trying. 

Sweet corn has become very popular in India and is now readily available through out the year in super markets as well as our local vegetable markets. We can get the corn cobs and separate the kernels or if we don't have that much time separated kernels are also available but a bit pricey. 

Sweet corn is delicious and healthy. It is rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals. It is sweet to taste and can be eaten raw, if it is fresh.

Here I am giving you some recipes which are easy to make yummy and popular with young and old alike at the same time healthy and nutritious... 

Boiled Corn

Bring to boil 2 cups of water in a pan, add a cup of sweet corn, cover and cook on low heat till done. 

Drain the water, and it is ready for use. 


Note: 

  • If the corn is fresh and tender, it will be cooked within 5 to 10 minutes. 
  • This will serve one person.
  • 1 cup of fresh corn means roughly 175gms
  • 1Tbsp of butter is roughly 14 gms


The following recipes will use this boiled corn and the corn should be hot and served hot

Butter - 1 tbsp
Green Chilly Sauce- to taste
Salt to taste (if required)

Take the boiled corn in a serving cup/bowl, butter and sauce. Mix well and serve hot. 

The Sauce contains salt and oil. So adjust the quantity of butter or avoid it if you don't want it to be too fatty. I prefer to add butter as the sauce is spicy.

Similarly for the salt, first add the sauce to the corn and if required add salt according to your taste.
