Spicy Sweet Corn Salad

Sweet Corn is very rich in vitamin B1, vitamin B5, vitamin C, phosphorus, manganese, folate and dierary fiber.  Researches show that it is also good for cardiovascular health, helps in cancer prevention, protection of vision and it is also useful in enhancement of memory.  You can find a detailed article about it on which describes all the benefits of using sweet corn in our diet.
As I said, I make it a point to cook all kinds of veggies and grains to keep a balanced diet!  So, while shopping I had noticed some fresh sweet corn kernel and bought some without too much thinking.  As usual, I forgot about it for a couple of days after putting it in the refrigerator!  On a weekend my sister had come visiting us and I suddenly remembered that during her last visit, she had prepared sweet corn salad which tasted really good.  So I quickly asked her to prepare this salad, since the corn was lying in the refrigerator for a couple of days already!  She did prepare it with a different twist this time which tasted good as well.  It will make a filling salad for dinner or you can snack on them in the evenings. I love the crunchy and buttery taste in it and its bright colour! J

Preparation Time: 5-8 minutes
Serves: 4 persons

Sweet corn – 2 cups/ 500 grams
Onions – 2 medium sized
Cilantro/Coriander leaves – few springs
Green chilies – 2-3 or Red chili powder – 1 tsp if you want to replace green chilies
Pepper powder – ½ tsp
Chat Masala – ½  tsp
Lemon Juice – 1 tsp
Butter/salad oil/Olive oil – 1 tbsp

1.      Wash and steam sweet corn with butter in a microwave for 4-5 minutes.
2.      Chop onions, green chilies, Cilantro finely and add it to the steamed sweet corn.
3.      Add pepper powder, Chat masala, salt to taste and lemon juice and mix them together.
4.      Serve hot with Tea/Coffee in the evening or with dinner.

You can replace green chills with red chili powder and add a pinch of garam masala for different variation which my sister prepared during her last visit.  This tastes more chatpata!

Points to Ponder:

Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds; for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations.
