Corn Kheer (Sweet Corn Pudding)

Corn Kheer

When I saw a blogger friend of mine post this recipe on her blog, I thought I should try making it. Corn cob is by far less expensive in India compared to here so I was not sure if I should give this a shot with what is apparently an exotic ingredient here. I finally managed to find the time and energy to make this but still decided to make it using frozen corn kernels. I thawed it and ground it coarsely in my food processor. I also added some almond powder to it to enhance the flavour. Although it looked appealing, I wanted to taste it before I offered it to others and I must say that I felt sorry for making just enough for two people. It was so yummy and is a keeper. If you prefer, you could grind the corn fine. Here is the recipe...

1 cup frozen corn kernels, ground coarsely
1 cup milk
1/8 to ¼ cup sugar
2 tablespoon ground almond
Crushed nuts for garnish

Boil the milk and start stirring when it just begins to boil

Add the crushed corn kernels and cook in low flame until it is cooked and the milk reduces

Add the almond powder and sugar and simmer further until desired consistency is achieved, grnish with crushed nuts and serve

I may add a wee bit of saffron strands next time
