Spicy Corn Chaat
1½ cups Sweet Corn (I have used canned one but you can use fresh or frozen)
¼ cup Onion, finely chopped
¼ cup Tomato, deseeded and finely chopped
¼ cup Cucumber, diced into ½ cm cubes
1 tbsp Raw Mango, peeled and grated (Optional)
1tbsp Coriander Leaves, finely chopped (Optional)
1-2 Green Chillies, finely chopped (Optional)
½ freshly squeezed Lime juice (As per taste)
2-3 tbsp Sev/Bhujia, deep fried gram flour noodles (Optional. Available in any Asian stores or supermarkets)
Salt to taste
¼ tsp Red Chilli Powder (As per taste)
1/8 – ¼ tsp Roasted Jeera/Cumin Powder
¼ – ½ tsp Chaat Masala (Available in any Indian stores)
If you are using a fresh or frozen corn, you can either boil them in enough water for 5-7 mins or microwave them on high power for 4-5 minutes and
let it come to a room temperature before using. I have used canned variety which doesn’t require any cooking.
Take a medium sized mixing bowl and add sweet corn, onion, tomato and diced cucumber. Mix them well with a help of a spoon.
Next add all the spice powders listed above along with green chillies and salt to taste to freshly squeezed lime juice. Mix them well.
Add this to the sweet corn as well as finely chopped coriander leaves and mix them well. Adjust the seasoning as per taste.
Spoon this Spicy Corn Chaat into serving bowl or plate and add some spicy and crispy sev or bhujia for a crunchy texture and sprinkle little chaat masala if desired.
