CORN CUCUMBER PEANUT SALAD


CORN CUCUMBER PEANUT SALAD

Many of us, and children in particular, love sweet corn especially in the rainy season when it is roasted on hot coals. Apart from eating it this way, we can use sweet corn to make a variety of dishes. Elsewhere in this blog, you will find recipes for Sweet Corn & Vegetable Soup, Corn ki Subzi, and Palak & Corn Cutlets.  

Today's recipe is a for a simple yet yummy salad made with sweet corn, cucumber and roasted peanuts. I am sure you will love this as much as we do.

Ingredients:-

  • Cucumber, chopped, 1/2 cup
  • Peanuts, 2 tbsp
  • Green Chillies, finely chopped, 2
  • Lemon Juice, juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • Salt, to taste
