Unusual recipes featuring one of this season’s most widely available ingredients!
The monsoons are here and it’s corn time! Although corn is available throughout the year these days, there’s a special connection between the rain and corn – especially roasted corn on the cob! Over the years, innovative cooks across the world have introduced corn into a variety of recipes and it is often found in preparations ranging from soups and salads to curries and pulaos.
Versatile as it is, corn can be roasted, boiled, steamed, fried or even baked. As a party ingredient, it is unbeatable! You can make corn chips at home using maize flour (makai ka aata), which can be served with a nice corn dip. You can use corn in a chaat, or add it to a burger cutlet. The options are innumerable, depending on the type of corn you are using.
Various types of corn are available in the market, such as white corn, yellow corn, and baby corn. White corn is not as easily available as the sweet yellow corn that has swept the markets over the last few years, but it has its own special taste.
Here are some unusual recipes featuring yellow corn. Call your friends over for a monsoon party and surprise them with a cornucopia of goodies!
