- 1 heaped cup corn kernels, fresh or frozen (I recommend fresh)
- 1 tsp unsalted butter
- 1/2 tsp or less pepper powder
- 1/2 cup mixed vegetables, cubed (e.g., capsicum and carrots)
- 1/4 cup red onions, roughly chopped
- 2 tbsp fresh dill leaves, chopped, for garnish
- 1 tbsp fresh basil (optional), for garnish
- 1/3 tsp salt, or to taste
- 1 tsp olive oil
- Separate the kernels from the corn cob or use frozen corn.
- Heat olive oil in a pan. Add chopped onions. Saute them until they are transparent.
- Throw in carrot and capsicum cubes. Add some salt. Saute until they are soft and crunchy.
- Add corn kernels. Add butter. Throw in pepper powder. Let the corn cook with butter and pepper for 3-4 minutes.
- By now the vegetables and corn should have nicely absorbed the spices. Add remaining salt. Stir once. Turn off the heat.
- Add chopped fresh dill leaves and basil leaves.
- Serve hot. Happy eating!
Note: This dish is best enjoyed hot. Once it becomes cold, you should re-heat before serving.
