Sweet corn is very popular with us and in all its forms, especially on the cob of corn (butta) grilled on charcoal with a pinch of salt, chili powder and lemon juice. I personally love the creamy corn with noodles or corn fritters. My second favorite in corn items is curry form with roti or flavored rice. With piles of fresh corn on the cob in my fridge, thanks to my dear wife, we went on a sweet corn marathon for a few days. Bread pizza with sweet corn, steamed corn on the cob, vegetables au gratin with corn as the protagonist, corn vadas with lots of coriander and sweet corn curry to combine with pea pulao.
