I buy corn quite often as my son loves it.I roast the corn directly on fire and coat them with spices and lemon juice and he loves it this way. Sometimes I microwave the corn for a few minutes and then serve it. I have also tried pakode/fritters with corn and posted it before.
A couple of years ago in India , I used to buy lot of sweet corns and bring back home. They used to sell fresh from the farms near a place I worked. I really miss the farm fresh fruits and vegetables we used to get in India.I remember my mom making a side dish for rice and rotis with the boiled corn kernels. Sometimes , she also used to make this upma kind of dish with the grated corn. It used to taste really delicious . So I have been planning to make this for quite sometime as here corn is readilly available in the supermarket.
This is also a popular streetfood in Indore. Though the method I have followed here might not be the authentic street food recipe. I have also seen this made in many Maharashtrian and Gujarati homes. I made this for breakfast one day and my hubby really enjoyed this one. My son found it a little hot and spicy as it had green chillies in the paste form as well as red chilly powder. So next time , I plan to omit the green chillies. I really loved it and thought it would make a good side dish for phulkas or chapatis too.
