Spicy Corn


Spicy Corn with  Veg Biriyani and toasted herbed buttered bread

I still remember the days, we used to go to Prarthana Theatre with the children, they used to have one request all the time. Spicy Corn with  Vegetable Biriyani. They used to love this ever winning combination, plus this Spicy Corn is our family favourite too.

Prarthana happens to be a drive in theatre, we can park the car and watch the movie. We used to carry food from home, the all time favourite Spicy Corn with Veg Biriyani. I am very happy to share this recipe which we have been making for years and enjoying .

Chef’s Tips

1) To achieve a great taste use canned corn only. Using a combo of cream style corn and sweet corn gives a good body to the dish.

2) Cream style corn is used for making sweet corn soup too.

3) Ready made tomato purée gives that peachish pink colour. Wonderful to see and Wonderful to taste.
