This was awesome. Spicy corn! I used fresh corn which we have in abundance and I'm sure that made it even better..
- 1 package (10 ounce) frozen corn
- 2 teaspoons ghee
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 1 green chile, chopped (fresh)
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne chile powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
- 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped (fresh)
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
Note: do NOT thaw the corn. Using frozen helps to cut down moisture during the cooking process
Heat ghee in a medium frying pan. When hot, add cumin seeds and reduce heat to medium. Add green chili and cayenne.
Add corn and stir into the spices. Add salt to taste and cook until corn becomes soft and most of the moisture has evaporated - about 5-10 minutes.
Stir in the lemon juice. Garnish with the chopped cilantro. Serve hot as a snack or side dish. Makes four snack-sized servings.
