Peri Peri Sweet Corn Kosambri Recipe (Southindian Style Corn Salad)
Kosambri is a healthy and refreshing traditional salad which is served during festivals or prepared during summer. Kosambri is normally prepared with raw mango, cucumber and soaked mung dhal (soaked split mung beans) tempered with mustard and garnished with freshly grated coconut and coriander.
After receiving entire range of corn from supa corn I was planning to create a mashup recipe (two different flavor combinations or two completely different dishes combined is called mashup recipe). My plan was to use Peri peri masala it has always been my favorite spice blend. Please click here to view my corn kosambri recipe posted in 2010.
Supa Corn is oxy packed remains fresh until 9 months without refrigeration. No preservatives added. What I like about supacorn is their option to serve the corn as it is or we can add to any dish. Corn kernels cooks fast under 2 minutes. We can also consume the corn directly from the packet. Visit http://www.supafood.in/ for more info.
