Corn Chaat


How easy is it for you to reach out for a pack of chips when hungry?? Since, I always finish my lunch early, I am quite hungry most evenings. And, I sometimes eat junk along with my cup of coffee.  Well, there are days when I get this sudden urge to eat healthy stuff & avoid all the junk :) And, this Corn Chaat is reserved for such days ...
Corn Chaat

You Will Need:
  • 1 cup sweet corn
  • 1/4 cup green peas
  • 1 onion - finely chopped
  • 1 small tomato - deseeded & finely chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper - finely chopped
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper - finely chopped
  • 1 carrot - grated
  • 1 tsp green chilli paste
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp chaat masala
  • Salt as per taste
  • chopped Cilantro for garnish
How To:
  • Boil sweet corn & green peas in salted water. Do not overcook. Drain & set aside.
  • In a large bowl, add all the ingredients except cilantro. Mix well, adding salt to taste. Be careful while adding salt & chaat masala tends to be a little salty. 
  • Garnish with cilantro
Serve as a starter/ tea time snack or even as salad .. Enjoi !!!

NOTE:
  • You can also add Sev for garnish. I wanted to keep this all healthy, so, that wasn't added here. But it does make this dish more crunchy.
  • If you don't like eating raw bell peppers, omit them
  • You could also add boiled potato cubes.
