Indian Corn Dip

Tempering is an inherent aspect of Indian cooking, and perhaps a key factor that boosts the flavour and aroma of most dishes. Here is an Indian Corn Dip made of crushed sweet corn kernels in a milk-cornflour base, flavoured with green chillies and tempered traditionally. This desi dip has a unique aroma, flavour and mouth feel that goes perfectly well with khakhras or nacho chips too!
