Corn Bhel (Sweet Corn Chaat)


Today I am sharing a very healthy and delicious twist on the traditional bhel recipe - Corn Bhel. If you are craving chaats and chatpata things, this is a quick and easy way to appease your tastebuds :)

Ingredients: Sweet Corn - 2 cups (frozen or fresh), Tomatoes- 2 chopped, Cucumber - Chopped 1, Onion - 1 small chopped, Cilantro for garnish, Sev - 4 tbsp.

Apart from this you also need these 2 chutneys essential for any chaat:
1. Sweet Jaggery/Date and Tamarind Chutney:  Soaked dates: 10-12,  Jaggery - 1/4th cup, Tamarind pulp -  1tbsp, Coriander powder-  1 tsp, red chilli powder -  1 tsp, salt to taste. Soak dates for at least 20 mins and then grind all the ingredients in a mixer. Cook for 5-8 mins till chutney is thick.

2. Spicy Green Chutney: Cilantro - 1/2 bunch, Mint - few leaves, green chilli - 4-5 (as per desired level of spiciness), lemon juice - 1/2 lemon, salt to taste. Grind all these ingredients in a mixer and pour into a container.

Method for making Corn Bhel:Microwave sweet corn for 5-8 mins till soft (not mushy). Then mix all the ingredients along with both the chutneys. Garnish with cilantro and sev and serve chilled or at room temperature. 

This is also makes a great item to carry for picnics or camping because unlike the traditional puffed rice (churmura), the sweet corn does not get soggy!
