Corn Crush with Spring Onions

Corn Crush with spring onions, varan bath, puri and cucumber cuts

When we have plenty of corn at home we make bhel, pops, use in soups and then we want a special dish that is very satisfying can't place my finger on what it is that makes this corn crush so special. It resembles the zunka but is more moist and flavorful. It can be had on its own or with any type of roti or puri like we did.


2 cups of corn
4 -5 sprigs of spring onions
2-3 green chilies
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
4 teaspoons oil
salt to taste

2 teaspoon lemon juice

Coarse crush the corn in a dry grinder or chutney attachment. Chop roughly the spring onions and green chilies.

Heat the oil. You will notice that I have used double the quantity of oil than I normally use. My normal measure is 2 teaspoons per person per meal but this recipe actually needs more oil. So use the 4 teaspoons. Splutter cumin seeds in hot oil. Add the spring onions, green chilies and fry a bit. Then add in the crushed corn and mix well.

Before serving mix in the lemon juice.
