Corn in potato nest- Kids recipes

corn in potato nest This is a nice healthy snack as corn is of a high nutritious value. Addition of corn to our diet, couple of times a week has many health benefits. You can make corn more interesting especially for the kids by adding things which they love ,like I made with potatoes and cheese.

Ingredients -
For the corn filling-
Sweet corn - 2 no. cooked well and kernels seperated.
Onion - 1 finely chopped
Garlic - 1 crushed
Chillies- 1
Cumin - 1tsp
salt - acc. to taste
Coriander leaves
Oil

For the potato nest -
Potato - 1 big
Oil for deep frying

For garnishing -
Grated cheese
Chaat powder

Method -
Corn filling-
Heat 2tsp oil in a pan and add cumin seeds,garlic,chillies. Then add onion and fry them till they become translucent. Add the corn and mix well. Add salt and coriander leaves.

Grate the potato and and arrange them on a metal sieve(shape of a cup)and deep fry them.
(You could even arrange potato julienne on a mould and deep fry them.)
If someone has better and easier idea to make the potato cups/basket, please do share with me. My potato basket did not come out that good, but it was ok as I could fill the corn in it neatly.

Assembling - Fill the potato nest with corn. Add grated cheese on the top. Sprinkle little chaat powder on them. Microwave for about 2 minutes till the cheese melts.
