We love corn in any form and this is no exception.  Taste of corn with milk and  little tadka (tempering) is really yummy.    This is an easy snack that can be made with few ingredients.  Today I have used canned corn but you can use steamed fresh sweet corn, frozen one (thawed) whichever is available.  The point is you have to cook the corn in the milk for some time until the 3/4th of the moisture is absorbed which gives nice milky taste to the corn. But today I  have cooked the corn until all the milk is absorbed.  Either way it tastes great. SRHZHJP5J7YV  Here is a quick post !!!



Corn - 1 cup
Milk - 1/2 cup
Ginger paste or finely chopped ginger - 1/4 tsp
Green chilli - 1
Chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida - very little
Curry leaves - few (optional)
Coconut - 1/2 tbsp
Lemon wedges - few while serving
Oil - 1/2 tsp
Coriander leaves - few chopped finely


1.  Heat the milk in the vessel.  Add the steamed, canned or frozen corn in the milk.
2. When 3/4 th of the milk is absorbed. Put off the flame.
3.  Heat oil in the pan; add mustard seeds, cumin seeds when it splutters.
4. Add the ginger paste, green chilli and Asafoetida.
5. Now add the corn, salt, chilli powder, Coconut give it a nice toss until well blended.
6. Now serve hot with lemon wedges and chopped coriander leaves.

Enjoy the Milky Corn Snack!!!


1. If you feel like eating corn saucy then cook them until 3/4th of the milk is absorbed else cook the corn until full moisture is absorbed.  I personally love both the ways.
2. You can also coarse the corn in the blender and cook in the milk.(Make sure it does not become like a paste)
