Today’s post is very simple and lip smacking.Its as simple as tossing together few everyday ingredients and voila !you are left with a lip smacking snack. Yes as the title says i’m speaking about “Corn Salad/Chaat “.
Why the confusion between a salad and a chat ? If you eat it straight as i do- its salad , drizzle little sev as my kids do its chaat. Its good no matter how you eat it !!
Corn is such a versatile ingredient that it can be relished in innumerable ways.Its a favorite at home and any dish made with it,gets emptied in no time.I often make these corn salad / chat other than few more corn dishes.The sweetness of sweet corn compliments to the crunch of onions n cucumber.Addition of tomatoes makes it juicy.With heightened awareness of healthy meals,salads have become a part of our menu.I am so glad that my kids luv it so much that they are happy to gorge them in their snack box too. In fact , i haven’t found anyone till now who didn’t enjoy it..
So ready for a quick and kid friendly dish? Here it goes:

I have not mentioned the quantity of the ingredients.You can add them as per your preference.
Cook corn either in microwave or cooker. If in microwave for 10 mins and if in cooker for 1-2 whistles.
When the corn cob cools,slice the kernels using a knife.Finely dice onion, cucumber,carrot and tomato.
Prepare the chaat / salad dressing : Mix lemon juice,salt,jeera powder & chaat masala in a mixing bowl.Add a pinch of chopped chilli /pepper pwd/red chilli powder.Mix well.
Add onion,cucumber,carrot,tomato,pomogranete and boiled corn to the mixing bowl having dressing. Toss well to combine.
Garnish with chopped coriander and savor immediately.Agree ? All chaats need not be termed as junk foods .. This refreshing corn chaat proves it..
- You can also add little sweet chutney n green chutney to the dressing.
- You can also add chopped chopped boiled potato/raw mango / chopped capsicum /chopped pineapple to the salad.
- You can also add sev. To make it 100 % guilt free i avoided it.
- This can be served on a salt crackers/indian papad /canapes/ papdi or tacos or .... ideas are welcome....
