Very nice with the spices. I used plain yogurt since I didn't have cream around.
Noticed a trick in Bitman as I was researching these corn chowder recipes which is to boil the cobs in water to create the stock.

This has to be the best corn chowder we have had the pleasure of eating. We substituted an equal part of dry mustard powder instead of turmeric, and there was no difference to us. We added 1/8 teaspoon of white pepper at the end for a kicker. Next time we will roast the bell pepper on the grill, peel, chop and add it with the stock to get a slightly smokey flavor. Thanks for such a rockin' chowder!!!

This is sooooooo amazingly delicious!!!!! I even wanted it for breakfast! :o To cut down on the fat, we used 1% milk instead of the cream. Though the chowder obviously wasn't as thick as it should be, the taste was still fantastic! The only other change we made was that instead of fresh corn, we used about 3 cups of canned whole kernel and creamed corn combination. We hardly needed to adjust the seasoning--it was perfect for us! We will definitely make again. :)

Turned out amazing! Thanks a lot for the recipe Heres all I needed to change : - I had to use a bigger pot than the 4qt size suggested -I added an extra cup of water since the 10 minutes of vigorous boiling left the ratio a little low on water - I used a butter/milk mixture in place of the heavy cream

Made it vegetarian by frying a few slices of Morningstar bacon in the oil. Turned out great. Fabulously rich and tasty. I really liked this recipe. I never would have thought to add the turmeric, but it works. We added a stalk of celery, a bit of bullion and a chipotle pepper and a tbl of the sauce from the chipotles. We didn't thicken it, but we served it with cheddar cheese shredded into it and a tbl of cream in each bowl. It is a keeper for sure.

My family said this is a "Do Over" recipe! I used 3 cans of corn w/liquid, 3 large russet potatoes peeled (I put them in after the onion mixture sauteed and cooked them a little before adding the chicken stock) I also added 1 rib of celery w/the onion. I didn't have any cream, so I used 2% milk w/ 3 heaping teaspoons of sour cream, added slowly as not to curdle. Delicious!!

Very flavorful! The cheese on top is a nice touch. I added an eensy bit of cayenne pepper for a little extra zing.

My dad introduced me to this recipe and I have to say, this is one of THE best chowders I have ever tasted. I love putting extra corn and a little bit of corn starch in there to add sweetness and thickness, but otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing about this dish. It is perfect for rainy days, sunny afternoons, or lazy weekends! Or if you are anything like me, always keep some in the fridge just in case!
