One good thing about the monsoons is the Corn. Pity you don’t get to see the puranawala white corn. All you get these days are the sweet corns.Guess even corns are going the american way!!! Any ways, corns are my weakness be it yellow sweet corn or the white ones or even the baby corns. And the smell of fresh roasted bhutta on the charcoal fire….. Divine!!!! So with the much awaited weekend here and that we are very much on the vegeterian marathon , lets spice up our friday fever with a blend of sweet corn and luscious ,creamy paneer to make a nice grilled corn seekh kebabs. I used a gas oven tandoor but you can grill the seekhs in the oven or even on the tava. Dosent matter whatever way you cook , they are a guaranteed hit!!
Coarsely grind together the corn and ginger. Add grated paneer, chilli powder, haldi powder, salt, coriander powder, jeera powder, chaat masala, garam masala. Heat a little oil in a non stick pan and add the mixture. Cover and cook till the moisture
Soak the satay sticks in water for 10 mins. (This is to ensure that the sticks don't catch fire while grilling in the oven).
Now thread the Seekh Kabab mixture through the satay sticks and grill them in the oven or tandoor till they become golden. You can baste them in a little oil.
Serve with green pudina, coriander chutney and tomato ketchup.
Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.

Most of us Ubanites have this new found love for a space that’ll give us some “space”..Literally!
A place outside the boundaries of your home or workplace where you can be alone or with your friends and not be bothered with the hovering staff to take your order, execute and slap a bill and wait for you to empty space. I love my personal space and I’m very protective about it. So when the saturation sets in, ( being a mom to two naughty boys, I need to reset myself very often) I head to a nearby cafe just alone or with my bestie to spend next few hours in peace.
