Serves 2 people


  • 1 bowl sweet corn kernels, fresh or frozen, I used fresh ones
  • 1/2 inch ginger, minced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 green chili, minced
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/6 tsp asafoetida/hing powder
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp olive oil or any other oil
  • 1 tsp finely chopped coriander leaves, for garnishing
  • 2 tbsp chickpea flour tid bits, optional, for garnishing
  • salt to taste


  1. Mince ginger, garlic, and green chili. I crushed them together in a mortar and pestle. Keep aside.
  2. Heat oil in a deep-bottomed pan. Throw in mustard seeds. Let them splutter. Add turmeric powder, hing powder, and minced ginger-garlic-green chili. Saute on a low fire for a minute.
  3. Add sweet corn kernels and salt. Stir-cook them for 3 - 4 minutes on medium heat. Now, sweet corn changes into a darker shade. Turn off the stove. Your delicious, sweet corn snacks are ready!
  4. Serve it in bowls, topped with finely chopped coriander leaves and a teaspoon of chickpea flour tit-bits like sev or boondi. Enjoy eating!
