Corn is so popular these days that it is available in most of the little vegetable shops as well.

That apart though we also prepare variety of items like the Corn cutlet, Usli, Corn stir fry and now coming to what I am putting up today – Corn Parathas !

Good to remember:

1. Corn kernels should be tender enough and also fresh.

2. One can even use any other powders of her choice.  I have not used any to get the flavour of kernels.

3. Use always American sweet corn for the dish.

4. Using Potato to get the right texture for the stuffing.

    Tried to make this and it was too sweet and raw for my taste. Made Tikki with the filling and it tasted better than the paratha.

      Hi Juliettt,

      Probably the chili was not spicy i think. Actually it tasted just right to my pallot and hence i put it up. One can always change the spicyness as required!!!
