Corn Chaat




Today at 5 in the morning I woke up listening to the hymns of Mahalaya (Beginning of Festival of Goddess Durga for the year). Every Bengali waits for this festival throughout the year. This is the time when we present offerings, socialize with friends and have a lot of sumptuous meals. Form today till 24th the streets of Calcutta would be lit up and there would be a flavor of upcoming festival amongst all the people. Had I been in Calcutta today I would have heard of the hymns from each and every household. But there is a saying that you can take a Bengali out of Bengal but you could never take Bengal out of a Bengali. So without much ado I too have started to warm up for Durga Puja and would be busy Pandal hopping ( even so there are limited nos. ) in Bangalore. So happy Puja to my Blogger and Reader friends all over the world.

Coming back to post, as a person, I do not eat a heavy meal but munch on small bits of items from time to time. This prevents me from overeating and I do not feel hungry. Hence, today am going going to share a quick, easy and healthy chaat. This time around it is corn chaat. It is tangy and lip smacking. So here goes:
Ingredients:
1 cup Corn Kernels 
1 Onion, finely chopped
1 Tomato, deseed and diced
1/2 lemon, freshly squeezed
1/4 cup Cucumber, chopped
2-3 Green chillies, finely chopped
1 tsp Chaat masala
1/4 tsp Red chilly powder
Pinch of Black salt
Salt to taste
Pinch of Black pepper
Fresh Coriander leaves

Method:
Take a big mixing bowl and add corn kernels. Mix all the ingredients well, check the level of salt and adjust. Serve immediately and enjoy this fresh, instant chaat.
