Steamed Corn: Salt & Pepper

During the monsoons, there are a lot of corn kernels that are available in packets in the market. While it rains heavily and the weather is cool, is very comforting to sit with a nice bowl of hot corn kernels. The problem is, a bowl may not be enough.

My nephew (Samson Sequeira) loves eating Steamed Corn. He prefers them in 3 flavours: Salt & Pepper, Butter; and Cheese. In this recipe, I have flavoured the corn kernels with just salt & pepper to highlight the corn taste.

Preparation Time : 20 minutes
Cooking Time : 5 minutes
Portion : 4 portions
Corn Kernels 4 cups
Freshly Crushed Black Peppercorns To taste
Salt To taste

Preparation Method:

1.           Add the corn kernels in a pressure cooker, pour in 1 cup water; and cook for 3-4 whistles

2.          Drain and keep the kernels aside

3.          Season the corn kernels. Mix well

4.         Serve immediately.

·         If using corn-on-the cob, then pressure cook the cobs (as in Step 1); and remove the kernels with a knife

·         I usually don’t thrown the corn kernel water (from Step 2). I reserve it to use in cooking: whether it is for making pulao and adding to a curry to enhancing the flavour.
