Fast ideas - what's your fav corn recipe?

Favourite corn recipes1. Dress up your corn

This isn't a recipe, it's just what I whip up in jiffy to give my regular corn on the cob a fresh, tangy twist. Take lime juice and honey, mix them well. Spread the mix on the corn and sprinkle with red chilli flakes. You can also use this mixture as dressing for your sweet corn.

2. Corn spinach
Chop spinach and onions, grate some garlic too. Boil some corn kernels and keep aside. Heat someolive oil in a non-stick pan, put in the onion, saute until pink. Next add the garlic and spinach. Mix in the corn kernels and season according to choice and taste. Cook for five minutes. Serve as side dish or use as sandwich filling.

This is very easy to prepare and tastes great! First half-cook the rice and leave it to cool. Steam some sweet corn. Heat some olive oil in a pan, add cumin seeds, diced onions and salt (to taste). Add the rice and corn to the pan. Cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Garnish with finely choppedcoriander leaves and a little garam masala.

4. Sandwiched corn
Wash sweet corns and steam them. Add chaat masala, chilli powder, finely chopped onion, chopped tomatoes, salt and coriander leaves. Mix everything together. Spoon the mixture between slices of wholewheat bread and toast in a sandwich toaster. Serve with coriander or mint chutney. Works great as an evening snack with a hot cup of milk or coffee.
