This is a very famous street food of Indore.(Madhya Pradesh) Unlike other chaats and street foods this is a very healthy one. Grated corn is simmered in milk and then tempered with other ingredients to add the flavours. Hence this is also served as a breakfast in Indore.

Ginger ............... 1 tsp (grated)
Coriander leaves .. handful

Lemon juice ... 1 tbsp
Oil or ghee ... 2 tbsps

 For tempering:
Cumin seeds .. 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds .. 1/4 tsp
Asafoetida ...... 1 pinch

Method:
1. Grind the corn coarsely. Set aside.
2. Heat oil or ghee in a sauce pan and add the tempering ingredients.
3. When they crackle add the green chillies and ginger. Saute a little.
4. Add the corn and turmeric powder
5. Saute until the colour changes.
6. Add the milk and simmer. Cook until the milk is evaporated.
