Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 20-25 mins
- Grate the corn with a hand grater to make a coarse paste. (You could also use a food processor or mixer grinder but it will affect the taste. It tastes better if you use the hand grater.)
- Finely chop the ginger and green chilli.
- Add oil in a pan. Add asafoetida and mustard seeds till it splutter.
- Add green chillies and chopped ginger.
- Add corn paste, turmeric, chilli powder and salt. Stir it occasionally to make sure that no lumps are formed. Cook it for approx.10-15 mins until the liquid in the corn paste gets dried off and the colour of the mixture changes to golden yellow.
- Add milk and water. Continue stirring till its consistency becomes like halwa or upma.
- Add sugar and lemon juice.
- Garnish it with chopped coriander, grated coconut and serve hot.
