One more spicy chaat recipe for the monsoon time. Sweet corn chaat is an easy snack that you can prepare quickly or whenever you are short of time. Even bachelors can make it as it does not require any cooking expertise.

Mostly in India, corn cobs are consumed by either roasting them on charcoal or on stovetop. But you can use corn in many recipes. You can add them in cutlet, tikkis or rice dishes or they even go well with veggies or mushroom dishes.

I have used American sweet corn kernels which my sister had got for me to make this chaat. this is a healthy snack and you can consider making it for kids or for your family. But if you plan to make it for small kids then skip adding green chili and red chili powder.

I have added onions, tomatoes, lemon juice in this recipe and garnished with some sev.

A unique herb variation I added in the chaat was parsley. Generally we add coriander leaves in the chaat recipes that we make. However, the flavors of parsley, nicely blended with the Indian ingredients and tasted too good.

The corn chaat can be just had as it is. it can also be served as a starter and the best time to have it is while it is raining !!!

How to make corn chaat

Pressure cooking corn:

1. Rinse 1 cup corn kernels or 1 medium-sized corn cob a couple of times in water. I have used American sweet corn kernels here.

2. Add the rinsed corn kernels or corn cob in a pressure cooker. Also add 1.5 cups water and ¼ teaspoon salt or add as required.

3. Pressure cook the corn kernels or corn cob for 3 to 4 whistles or till they are cooked well. You could also boil kernels in a pan. Though this will take a longer time to cook.

4. Let the pressure fall down on its own in the cooker. Then remove the lid.

5. In a colander or strainer, strain the boiled corn or corn cob. Drain all the water and keep the cooked corn kernels aside. When the corn cob becomes warm or cools down, then remove the corn kernels with a knife. If you are using corn kernels then skip this step.
