Spicy Sweet Corn Chat

Though American Sweet Corn is abundant in USA, I am wondering how come I have missed this simple snack item on my Menu all these days. May be, in India, the crowded Sweet Corn Chat stalls on the road-side in the Monsoon Season, only reminds me how the sweet corn can be a spicy snack for this season. If you don't follow me, simply check out my recipe and at the end you will know how the Sweet Corn will SPICE you up!!!???#@%^&!!!. Now that sounds interesting, right ( wink, wink !!)

Spicy Sweet Corn Chat
Sweet Corn (Raw) - 1 cup
Red Onion Chopped - 1/2 cup
Tomato Chopped - 1/2 cup
Green Chili - 1
Cilantro Chopped - 2 Tbsp
Lime - 1
Red Cabbage ( optional) - 1/4 cup
Chopped Almonds - 2 Tbsp
Sev or Aloo Bhujia ( Halidiram's)  - 1/4 cup
salt - 1/2 tsp
black pepper - 1/4 tsp
coriander powder - 1/2 tsp

  1. Boil the sweet Corn in the water with the little added salt for 10 min. let it cool for 5 min.
  2. Chop the almonds also and set them aside.
  3. Take a wide bowl and start mixing the raw vegetables in the order red onion, red cabbage, sweet corn, green chili, tomato. Then add 1 tbsp of cilantro and mix it well.
  4. Add salt, black pepper and coriander powder and mix it well. 
  5. Then add chopped almonds, now taste little bit and adjust the seasonings. 
  6. Squeeze the lime juice (half lime) into the mixture in the bowl. toss the mixture gently in the bowl.
  7. Serve it into individual bowls, top with 1 tsp of Sev or Aloo Bhujia, and garnish with Cilantro and squeeze 2 drops of lime juice on top.

Now dig your spoon into this yummy looking snack and enjoy the spiciness of it. Though the Sweet Corn, Tomato makes it soft; Sev, Almonds , red Cabbage adds Crunch, but the Green Chili, Black Pepper, Red Onions, Coriander Powder creates the Volcano in your mouth. That's the SPICE i am talking about (Gheez, what else do you think...........!!??  :-)), Have a Glass of water Handy and Enjoy!!

P.S: If you notice the little water drops in my picture, then Yes, I have made this snack when i see the rain from my window, and enjoyed the monsoon rain while having my spicy snack sitting in the balcony. Oh Yeah! This only happens in India. :-)


1.  if you don't get raw sweet corn, you can replace with Frozen corn, then microwave for 1 min in the water.
2. I have added red cabbage as it is there in the fridge and handy,  while it adds color and crunch. If you are not a fan of cabbage, skip this with no doubt.
3. When you are eating vegetables raw, cutting them into the very thin and small pieces makes it inviting, while hiding the raw smell.
4. Almonds are my protein source in this snack, you can use cashew or peanuts. if you are allergic to nuts then skip it.
5.Coriander powder is the chat kick in this recipe and it is vital.
