Makai ni khichdi is a very tasty dish made using tender corn cobs. Of course, corn by itself is a very tempting ingredient! but, the intelligent choice of spices that complements the corn adds to the lure of this dish, which may be had as a snack or as a veggie accompaniment for dinner. The winning touch to this dish is the perfect balance of important ingredients like sugar, lemon juice and salt—so pay a lot of attention to it.
