Cholam Sundal / Fried Sweet Corn


As I have been sharing few sundal recipes, inspite of Navarathiri, this is one more to that list. I heard of this Corn Sundal through one of my friend, usually my kids love corn and they eat it once steamed or roasted in fire. As it was my first time, I have been wondering whether it would taste good and so I thought preparing with little quantity.

It was delicious and was finished in minutes by my kids. I would say it as “Kids friendly”.  Give a try and enjoy your Navarathiri. Let us move on to the recipe…
