Lemon sweet corn salad

Who doesn’t love corn ! it could be corn rice, in a pizza, sweet corn soup or simply a “bhutta”, well it’s irresistible. I haven’t met a person who doesn’t like bhutta. Specially when it’s raining.WOW, bhutta and a mix of salt and chili powder spread over it and a dash of lemon to get it going. Whoohoo :) :) :). Another favorite of mine is this recipe. I call it Lemon corn salad. Well it’s a real quickie, tangy and very healthy too. It’s that perfect 4 pm food. Very easy to prepare and super tasty too.

It’s been raining in Pune for a few days. And I had got a couple of raw corn on the cobs stacked up. Rains, stacked corn & cool weather  a perfect combination to get this recipe going. Well, who said healthy food ain’t tasty. Every mall or theater has a counter which sells this. But Why wait for a movie, go ahead and give it a try. Am sure you’ll like it.

Tips –

  1. You may use fresh, canned or frozen sweet corn. I’ve used fresh.
  2. Add salt to taste if you need. I haven’t added any to keep my salt intake in check. (Perhaps you won’t miss it since chaat masala is quite sufficient).
  3. If you want you can add a dash of butter for a rich taste. Again I have given it a miss. (Healthy fooooood people, healthy food ;) :P )
