Ingredients

For the Kees

  • 500 gms Sweet Corn
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 2 to 3 nos Dry Red Chilli
  • A Pinch Asafetida / Hing
  • 500 ml Milk
  • 1 tsp Ginger Paste
  • 2 to 3 Green Chillis chopped
  • Sugar to taste
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp Lemon Juice

For Garnish

  • Cashew Nuts roasted
  • Raisins roasted

Other Accompaniments

  • Onion finely chopped
  • Sev
  • Coriander leaves

Instructions

  • Boil the corn and let cool.
  • Once cooled, hold the corn cob upright and with a sharp knife remove the corn kernels in thin layers this way we get finely chopped kernels.
  • In a kadai heat ghee. add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida, whole red chilli. Add the chopped kernels. Sauté water evaporates and corns become absolutely dry.
  • Now add milk and cook till all the milk is evaporated.
  • Add green chilly and ginger and cook for a few minutes.
  • Add salt, sugar and lemon juice, stir well.
  • Check the spice, the flavor should balance sweet, salty, sour and spicy.
  • Serve with cashews, raisins and with finely chopped onions and sev.

Notes

Salt should be added right at the end or else the milk might curdle.
Instead of boiling, the raw corn can be grated also, in that case one needs to saute the corn well, before adding milk.
Since I was making in bulk, it was grated, some more fully in tact, so I ended up cooking it for longer time for it to become really soft.
