Fresh, tender, corn on the cob, bursting with flavor is a summer time favorite. This Corn cha Shira, as it is called in Marathi, is a favorite of mine since childhood. Luckily this recipe takes only a few minutes to make! I could not wait to devour it!
This Corn cha Shira is delicately seasoned to let the flavor of the corn shine through. The cumin, salt, chili powder lemon juice and freshly grated coconut accentuate the flavor of the corn.
To get the corn off the cob, I used the same technique as I did for the Raw Corn Koshimbir.
So here is the easy recipe-
Curried Corn Shira
- 1 small kadhai/ wok or frying pan
- 2 Fresh corn on the cob
- 2 teaspoons oil
- 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 1 green chili pepper, cut into pieces
- 8 fresh curry leaves
- 1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
- salt to taste
- 2 teaspoons lime juice
- 1/4 cup frozen grated coconut, defrosted
- Remove the corn from the cob with a knife. Discard the cobs.
- Heat oil over medium heat in a kadhai , wok or frying pan. Add the cumin seeds, green chili pieces and the curry leaves. After they sizzle, add the corn.
- Saute the corn, add chili powder and salt and saute until the corn starts caramelizing, about 2 minutes.
- Add the lime juice, stir and add the grated coconut. Serve the scrumptious Corn cha Shira!
I hope you enjoy this summer goodness as much as I do!
