When the monsoon comes it brings with it some special memories that we will always cherish. And more often than not, they are related to food, especially, corn! And why not? Corn goes hand in hand with the monsoon season. Whether it’s the first bhutta with your Grandpa or that sweet corn cup while taking a romantic walk with that special someone. Corn is the food that not only satisfies our taste buds but also gives comfort.
So, how can we enjoy corn apart from simply grilled on the cob? Read on to know more ways of relishing this delicacy!
1. Cheesy Corn Samosas
Who doesn’t love samosa with cutting chai on a rainy day? So, why not spice up the plain old samosa? Cheese, corn and potatoes combined with spices like green chillies and black pepper make for a tongue-tickling stuffing for samosas. It’s the perfect dish to serve your guests with some green chutney or tomato ketchup.
2. Sweet Corn Soup
Oh! The feeling of warm soup going down your throat after a long rainy day! What better soup variant than the very comforting sweet corn soup. Juicy vegetables perfectly complement the sweet taste of the corn. It can be made in a jiffy and is the perfect light and healthy dinner recipe to go for!
3. Corn Bhel
Our love for chaat and corn comes together in this amazing dish. If you think the roadside stalls selling sweet corn seasoned with chaat masala is exciting, then boy you are in for a ride with this combination of corn bhel! Think of your favourite ingredients in a bhel-puri ranging from onions, raw mango, tomatoes, onions to spicy powders and sev, now toss them together with cooked sweet corn and ta-da! You have yourself a delightful (please use another word in place of this) snack to tickle your taste buds!
4. Grilled Corn Cheese Cakes
We all love fritters with hot beverages during monsoon, so why not replace it with something different and instead try these amazing corn cakes! The taste of sweet corn pairs beautifully with the combination of cheese and breadcrumbs, chillies, ginger-garlic paste and dash of spices in this recipe. Combine all the ingredients, make them into patties and grill.
5. Corn Coleslaw
A creamy, crunchy and cool coleslaw is hard to resist but by simply adding some bold flavours and spices to it, you end up creating something that is so delicious that you will forever crave it. Black beans, red bell pepper, red onion, cilantro, and jalapenos add so much flavour and colour, plus when you add the delicious corn to it, you have yourself a really beautiful coleslaw! Put in a slider, tacos or a grilled sandwich and pair it with some hot chocolate and you have yourself a perfect monsoon hearty meal!
