Corn Bhel

With some guests coming over for tea and no mood to fry up some snacks, I remembered reading a corn bhel recipe in one of Tarala Dalal's books. Most of the ingredients were available at hand and very minimal work to do, a nice looking evening snack was ready without much of a fuss and hardwork.
I had store bought sev and puris in my pantry and some frozen corn and date-tamarind chutney in the fridge which saved a lot of effort. Recipe for date-tamarind chutney is here.

You need:
1 cup cooked corn
1 large potato boiled, peeled and cubed
1 large tomato finely chopped
1 smal onion finely chopped
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp red chilli powder
salt to taste
3 tbsp coriander leaves finely chopped
2 green chillies finely chopped
juice of 2 limes
4-5 tbsp sev (nylon sev used in bhel puris)
date-tamarind chutney
15-20 flat puris (as used for bhel puris)


Heat oil in a pan and sputter the cumin seeds. Add the onion and fry till transluscent. Add the green chillies, potato, tomato, red chilli powder and salt and toss for a minute. Turn off the heat and add the lime juice and mix well. Arrange the puris on a serving plate and add the warm corn mixture on it. Sprinkle the sev and spoon some date-tamarind chutney on top and garnish with coriander leaves.
