I was wondering if at all I have to write a simple post, then what it could be? Here was one remaining in my draft since a long time.

Due to hectic work pressure and sick health I thought of writing into my blog atleast on Tuesday and Thursday. 

Tuesday because I have become fond of Black and White Wednesday started by Susan and this week, which is Week #34 is going to be hosted by Sra on her blog "When My Soup Came Alive". The theme of this event is, whatever picture you send should be related to food but in black and white. Really the picture if taken in a beautiful camera then B&W pic also looks beautiful.

Corn in Black & White
Black and White are the two colors which are opposite in nature. Former absorbs more radiant energy than the latter one and thus the cooling is affected. (Source: Physics@Littleshop) Compared this with life, some situations are cool enough to handle while some are very tough to deal like the exam starting day and the ending day. Starting day would be very tensed for average students like me :) but on the last day of the exam when it is over, "hurray, a big dance". But indeed it was great to be a student than a working professional :(.

If you remember, B & W TeleVision was launched first then they switched over to Color Television. For more information, kindly read wikipedia.

Frozen Corn - 100 gms (store one)
Butter - 1 tbsp
Red Chilli Powder - 2 tsp
Salt - 2 tsp
Chaat Masala - 1 tsp
Water - 2 cups

Remove the frozen corn and allow it to come to room temperature.
Boil water and when it is completely hot, simmer the stove and steam the corn in a colander by keeping it on top of hot water for 10 to 15 mins
Once it is done, add butter, red chilli powder, salt and chaat masala mix it well
Serve it, they tasted lovely and my kids was tempted by the taste

WheatBreadCornSunaunde Porridge - Magic Mingle #3

WheatBreadCornSunaunde Porridge - Magic Mingle #3:

Magic Mingle is a monthly event in Kalyani's blog, which was called as itsnotmadrasi but she renamed it to sizzling tastebuds

WheatBread Corn Urad Dhal Halwa - Porridge
This month magic ingredients are Corn and Whole Wheat. Wholegrains can be used but not processed forms.

For my previous posts, please click here.

Sunaunde is a sweet made by Urad Dhal. It is also called Urad Dhal Halwa (click on this to check the recipe).

I bought frozen corn from Food World near my office at Koramangala. I had brought the roasted urad dhal and sugar blended together from home to make steamed kollakattais. 

How to steam corn in microwave:
(Source: Easy Indian Food)
  • Keep water in a microwave vessel and leave it for 2 minutes so that it can boil
  • Take a used and throw glass which is microwave proof put frozen corn into that and add butter, mix it well
  • Keep it in hot water and leave it for 2 more minutes (2 minutes is safe in that glass after that it might crack a hole)
  • After one minute remove it and add little sugar and place it again for one more minute
  • Steamed corn in microwave is ready.

To prepare corn urad dhal halwa/corn sunundae:
  • Take the roasted urad dhal and sugar powder, pour steamed corn into it and mix it well

  • Try to make small balls, if you couldn't then pour little milk to it and make into small balls.

  • Trying for kollakattais went into a disaster mode. So as I had these balls I checked for wheat bread but i had only one which I had just put it into milk. 

  • For the same I mixed two small balls and made it a porridge.

Pictures which I took in order to make Kollakattai:
Wheat Bread - squeezed out all the water and spreaded with corn sunundae
Marie Biscuits to get crunchiness on top of bread
Kollakattai dipped in Marie biscuits powder
Kollakkatias are ready for steaming

 After steaming it did not taste well, so definitely will post this recipe soon.
