Corn Salad

Asha suggested to me that I must forward this recipe to Hima for her event of What's your Favourite with the theme of Diet Food this month. Thanks Asha.

So this is my contribution for the Diet Food event, Hima.

Corn Salad is one of the easiest and likeable salad/ side dish/ snack.
It is very nutritious too.
It is also called as Corn Bhel.
I make this salad quite often.
You can make it using fresh corn or the frozen variety.
I always have some corn in my freezer, So I quickly make this as a snack in the evenings often.

To make Corn Salad you will need-
2 cups of frozen or fresh corn kernels
1 Onion
1 Tomato
1 Green Chilli
Juice of half a Lime
Half a cup Cilantro, finely chopped
1 tsp chaat masala pwdr

First of all, cook the corn in the microwave on high for 5 minutes.
You can also boil it in the pressure cooker.
For that, fill water in the bottom of the cooker, about an inch and place another vessel in the cooker with corn in it. so that the corn does not become too moist. And pressure cook on high for 5 minutes and then let the pressure drop on its own.

Chop onion, tomato and green chilli.
Mix these chopped veggies in the corn.
Add all the Chaat masala pwdr, salt and lime juice.
Garnish it with chopped Cilantro.
Serve it right away or it tastes great chilled too.
