I have learned this recipe from my mother in law as she makes this very often and delicious too. Corn kees is one of the dishes that is prepared with the onset of monsoon. Though we now get sweet corns all throughout the year, there is something else that makes it more special to relish it when it rains. Corn and monsoon are like made for each other. I often make corn dishes and each one has its own unique flavor and taste. Corn is so versatile that you can have it in sweet, savory, or spicy form. It tastes good none the less. Every region has it’s unique dishes and all cities are famous for its street food. Try this lip-smacking Corn cheese balls if you haven’t.
