  • bowl
  • pan
  • spatula
  • Blender


  • 14 oz Sweet corn or 2 cobs of corn
  • ½ cup Milk
  • 3 tablespoon Fresh grated coconut
  • to garnish Fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoon Ghee
  • 2 small Green chilies finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger grated
  • a pinch Asafetida
  • ½ teaspoon Cumin seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon Mustard seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon Turmeric powder
  • to taste Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • ½ teaspoon Lemon juice


  • If using fresh corn cob, grate the corn using a grater. If using frozen corn, grind them until finely chopped. I used frozen corn kernels and I ground it in my blender / food processor to coarsely powder it.
  • In a pan, heat the ghee and add the cumin seeds and mustard seeds. Let it fry for about 30 seconds and then add the green chilies, ginger, turmeric powder, asafetida and fry.
  • Now add the grated corn and fry in low flame, until it changes color slightly and starts to roast (about 8 minutes).
  • Then add the sugar, salt and milk and mix well. Let the mixture come to a boil and then simmer it until the corn cooks and becomes thick.
  • Garnish with grated fresh coconut, cilantro and lime juice and serve the Bhutte Ka Kees.


Expert tips
  • Use fresh sweet corn or frozen sweet corn kernels to make this dish. When corn is in season, this is a great recipe to make with the fresh corn cobs.
  • Corn is cooked in milk for richness. If Vegan, use any non dairy milk of your choice.
  • Garnishes are very important and I would not skip them. The freshly grated coconut adds a layer of freshness to the sweet, sour and salty corn snack.
