Corn Khichdi is a very simple khichdi recipe which made with crushed sweet corn kernels and rice. I love the sweet, spicy and tangy flavor of this recipe. It is served with curd, pickle or any Indian chutney. You can use fresh corn or frozen corn kernels which are easily available.
Sweet corn khichdi is a delicious and nutritious recipe which you can prepare in few minutes without any efforts. You can serve this dish as lunch or dinner menu. Sweet corn adds the sweetness in this khichdi, so you can add the sugar according to sweetness of corn.
The taste of this corn khichdi is medium spicy and perfect balance of sweet and spicy taste. You can add lemon juice also for extra tangy flavor.
