Spiced Corn With Coconut

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by eatrealfood

This is a mild Indian side-dish or snack that is bursting with flavor, although not as robust in spices as most Indian dishes are - making it perfect for the uninitiated.

Tried this as a side dish with a spicy lamb curry the other evening and it was absolutely delicious. The only change I made was using mild chilli powder but this was only because I didn't have any dried chillies to hand. This dish will go with just about anything - I'll be having it with pork chops next time!
