Corn Chaat

Chaat is a very common in India. All the road side shops will sell these kind of foods. You have to plan ahead for most of the chaat items. Once you have all the ingredients ready, mix and serve immediately. But this recipe is very simple no chutney preparations. Whatever veggies you like, it can be added. Rather than chaat it can be named corn salad. I like adding rasam powder in the corn while frying it. This recipe was shared from my friend Raji.  


Ingredients:

  • Corn Kernels - 1 cup
  • Cucumber - 1
  • Onion - 1
  • Tomato - 1
  • Cilantro - 1 tbsp
  • Peanut -1/4 cup
  • Salt - as per taste
  • Oil - 2 tbsp
  • Boondhi or sev - 1/4 cup
  • Chaat Masala - 1 tsp
  • Lemon Juice - 1 tbsp


Method:


Chop the veggies finely. Fry the peanuts in a tbsp of oil. Keep aside. In the same oil saute the corn kernels. Add red chilly powder and salt in the kernels and fry till the kernels becomes tender.

Combine the kernels with diced cucumber, onion , tomato, coriander leaves(cilantro), salt, lemon juice and chat masala powder in a mixing bowl. Add peanuts and sev while serving.
 Serve immediately.

Note:
  • Ground pepper can be added instead of red chilly powder.
  • Peanuts and sev should be added while serving, otherwise, it will lose the crunchiness.
  • Add or less the ingredients as per your choice.
  • If you don't have chaat masala, skip it. Try adding fresh mangoes.
  • For more taste, add butter while sauteing corn kernels.
