a creamy sweet corn dessert using fresh corn and milk and flavored with cardamom.
  • 1 1/2 cups sweet corn kernels
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6-7 almonds ( badam )
  • A few strands of saffron
  • 2 green cardamom pods ( elaichi or elakkai )
  • 2 tsp ghee ( clarified butter )
  1. Cook the sweet corn kernels till they turn slightly soft. Once they cool down, blend the sweet corn to a slightly coarse paste with 3-4 tbsp water.
  2. Heat ghee in a thick-bottomed or non-stick pan. Add the sweet corn paste. Fry for 3-4 minutes on a medium-flame.
  3. Meanwhile soak the saffron strands in 1 tbsp hot milk. Crush the cardamom seeds to a fine powder using a mortar and pestle.
  4. Soak the almonds in a bowl of hot water for around 15 minutes. Drain the water and peel the skin of soaked almonds. Slice the peeled almonds and set aside.
  5. Now add milk to the sweet corn paste. Mix well. Once it comes to a boil, reduce the flame and let this simmer till the quantity of milk is reduced to almost half.
  6. Finally add the sugar and saffron strands. Mix well. Let this cook for a minute. Then add the sliced almonds and ground cardamom powder. Mix well and cook for another minute. Remove from heat.
  7. Sweet corn kheer is now ready to be served warm or chilled.
1. Use fresh corn for this kheer recipe.
2. I have used boiled milk for this sweet corn kheer.
