    1. 1
      Put the corn and milk in a heavy pan. Bring to a simmer, making sure it doesn't boil over. Simmer vigorously, stirring occasionally, until there is very little milk left (just enough to keep the corn looking wet).
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. When hot, put in the cumin seed. A few seconds later, add the ginger and green chili. Stir once.
    3. 3
      Add the corn, sugar, salt, and cayenne to the frying pan. Stir to mix. Add the coconut and cilantro.
    4. 4
      Mix again and turn off the heat.

      This was delicious, although the corn turned out a little bit tough, I think due to the length of time it was cooked for. I'm not sure how this could be avoided without affecting the taste though, as I think cooking the corn in the milk as it reduces is what makes it taste extra yummy. I might experiment to see if I can make it turn out more tender (I'm thinking bringing the milk to the boil before adding the corn will reduce the time the corn is cooked for slightly & might therefore help). My kids really liked this too; we ate it as part of a vaguely Gujarati-style meal of Khichdi (rice, lentils & a bit of veg) and Kadhhi (curried yoghurt gravy) with a simple tomato curry. I followed the recipe exactly as written, although with slightly less chilli to make it more child-friendly (oh, and I used ghee instead of oil).

      This recipe is full of some of my favorite ingedients! Ginger! Chile! Coconut! Cilantro! Oh yes, corn! Lots of lovely flavors in this dish, but I didn't think the amounts were enough, so I upped the cumin and ginger and even the cayenne. I'm glad I did, we were very happy with what was on our plate. I made this with soy milk because I didn't want it to be dairy, and served it with some leftover Kuure-ed Chicken (A Yooper-Inspired Recipe) that I had in the freezer. With a side of Basmati rice and a cuke salad, this was a quick and lovely Indian meal.
