Corn Upma

Monsoon is here and there is nothing more delish than a roasted corn with a dash of lime and salt.

Corn upma is also an amazing and flavorful recipe to try! This is my Nani’s special recipe and we enjoy it every time.

Roasted corn kernels (2 corn)
2 medium onions chopped
4 – 5 dry red chillies (you can even use green chillies or chilli flakes)
1/2 inch ginger finely chopped
1/2 tap asafoetida
1 tsp mustard
2 sprigs of curry leaves
2 tbsp coriander leaves
1 lemon’s juice
Salt to taste
3 tbsp oil

Remove the corn kernels from the cob and roast them in a pan. Cool them for a while and grind them in mixer. They shld not turm completely (the trick to do this is to pulse the mixer/grinder and not run it for long)

Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed pan. rackle Add mustard seeds and crackle them followed by curry leaves and dry chillies. Now saute chopped onions and ginger. Add asafoetida. Now add the corn mash and mix it well. Add salt as per taste. Stir fry it for a while. When almost done, add the lemon juice and mix well.

Enjoy the hot corn upma with a cup of masala chai!!
