- 1.5 Cup Sweet Corn
- Salt As Required
- 1 tbsp Grated Coconut
- 1 tbsp Coriander Leaves
- 3 tsp Oil
- 1 tsp Mustard Seeds
- 1/2 tsp Urad Dal
- 2 Red Chilli
- 1 Green Chilli
- 1 Sprig Curry Leaves
- 2 Generous Pinch Hing
Slice green chilli, grate coconut and keep by side. I used frozen corn, so just rinsed well and directly used it. If using fresh corn, just scrape the corn kernels with a knife and then pressure cook it.
Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and let it splutter. Then add urad dal, curry leaves, red chilli, green chilli and hing.
Now add the sweet corn, required salt and mix well.
Cook covered for 2 to 3 minutes in low flame. Switch off the flame and add grated coconut.
Garnish with coriander leaves and mix everything well.

Tips for Sweet Corn Sundal Recipe
- If using fresh corn, just scrape the corn kernels from cob, pressure cook it for 3 whistles and then use it. I used frozen corn so used directly.
- You can also use dry corn kernels, if so soak in water for 4 - 5 hours, pressure cook for 3 whistles and then use it.
The addition of salt, while pressure cooking corn, prevents it from overcooking.
Also, adjust chillies as per spice level required.
For more flavour, add curry leaves and hing generously.
For a variation, 1 tsp of jeera and few mint leaves can be used while tempering.
- To make it more colourful and healthy, grated carrots can be used.
