Corn Bhel | Corn Chaat | Sweet Corn Bhel Recipe

If you know me or follow my blog, you are well aware of how much crazy I am when it comes to these sweet juicy corn kernels. You will always find my refrigerator stacked with corn, especially during monsoon season.

So when I crave for a lip-smacking chaat in the evenings, this corn bhel is what I end up making. Apart from making this bhel, I love to munch on corn salad, buttered sweet corn masala, corn pakoda, and corn pancak (chilla).

Not only does it taste delicious and easy to make but this corn bhel is healthy and filling. This is a fuss-free, easy to make, and quick recipe for beginners and bachelors.

This corn bhel / chaat is hit with kids too. While making for kids, reduce the amount of green chutney and add potatoes if they like.

This recipe gets done quickly if you already have chutneys ready with you. At home, I always stock tamarind chutney (imli ki khatti meethi chutney) and coriander chutney so it becomes easy to prepare any kind of chaat recipe when craving the same.

When in a mood to quickly stir up a healthy starter for a get-together or kid’s party or evening snack this corn bhel comes in handy.

I always you those yellow juicy American sweet corn in making this recipe. You can also use frozen sweet corn. As still we are getting raw mangoes (kairi) here in Mumbai I have added it to this dish for that extra burst of flavour.

This wholesome finger-licking vegan chaat recipe is perfect for this monsoon season. The sweetness of the corns very nicely compliments with the spicy chutney and tangy flavours from chaat masala.

A perfect amalgamation of juicy sweet corn kernels tossed with tangy and spicy imli chutney and coriander chutney along with crunchy onions, raw mangoes and juicy pomegranate seeds flavoured with finger-licking chaat masala and herbs.

The addition of sev (fried gram vermicilli) and puri/papdi adds an amazing crunch to this corn chaat recipe. I have added only sev and puri / papdi here. You can also add roasted peanuts here.

You may also add veggies like bell peppers, cucumber, tomatoes as per your liking. Just make sure to remove seeds from tomatoes.

To make this corn bhel we are using green coriander chutney (cilantro chutney). I have already shared the easiest way to make this chutney on this blog. If interested click here to get the detailed recipe for spicy coriander chutney.

I have also shared the recipe for tamarind chutney. If interested click here to get the detailed recipe for tamarind (Imly Ki Chutney).

Both chutneys can be made in advance. Tamarind chuntney (imly chutney) stays good for about 3-4 months when stored in refrigerator and green coriander chutney stays well for about a week. So once you have this chutney ready, half of the work is almost over.

This refreshing delicious corn bhel can be had for a light meal also when you are bored with the same usal dal,rice, roti, sabji.

For my International foodies, if you can’t get puris, use tortilla chips for the crunch. They also go very well in this corn bhel.

Nowadays you can get tamarind chutney at any Indian grocery store. So you can use that too.

To make this super easy corn bhel or corn chaat all you need to do is boil the corn toss it with veggies like onions, tomatoes, cucumber, bell peppers along with spices like cumin powder, chaat masala, and top it up with sev (gram flour vermicilli) and papdi (puri), drizzle the chat with spicy and tangy chutneys and relish immediately.

You can also add boiled potatoes, especially if making for kids. They love it!

Sweet Corn: I have used 2 cups of sweet corn kernels that I boiled in water. Do not overcook them.

Vegetables & Fruits: I have used 1 small onion finely chopped. I added a tablespoon of finely chopped raw mangoes along with a handful of pomegranate seeds.

Chutneys: I have used spicy green coriander chutney and sweet & tangy tamarind chutney (khatti meethi chutney). You can also use garlic chutney for extra spice.

Spices & Herbs: I have used spices like chaat masala, cumin powder and garam masala powder. If you can’t get chaat masala, use dry mango powder also known as amchur powder.

Garnish: I garnished this corn bhel with sev and papdi (poori). You may also add roasted peanuts.
