Corn Potato Snack

This recipe was suggested by my Mom, when I was hosting a party for a few of my colleagues, and did not know what to serve as starters.
It’s a quick recipe, and can be made in less than 15 minutes if you have boiled potatoes stocked in your refrigerator!

Corn Kernels (Fresh or frozen): 2 cups
Boiled Potato (cut in small cubes): 1 Cup
Green Chili (Finely chopped): 1
Cumin Seeds (
Jeera): ½ tsp
Oil: 1 tbsp
Juice of half lemon
Salt: To taste

- Microwave / boil the corn kernels till they are soft. If you are using frozen corn, it should not take more than 5 minutes in a microwave oven. For fresh corn kernels, they should be done in 10 minutes
- Heat the oil in a pan. Add the cumin seeds. Once they splutter, add the chopped green chilies. Stir them till they start changing color
- Add the potatoes, corn kernels and salt. Stir fry for a minute
- Add the lemon juice just before serving. Do not heat once the lemon juice has been added

Why I recommend this snack?
- Its quick and easy to make
- Works best with alcoholic beverages
