Steamed sweetcorn kernels mixed in a variety of sauces was the “in thing” a few years back. Every mall or eatery on the road seemed to have a delicious version or two of this wonderfully addictive snack. In fact, there was a period where I went hunting for the best eatery that offered the best steamed sweetcorn in the city!
Many years later, I’ve tried my hand( and luck) at replicating the same sweetcorn kernels in a saucy gravy and what do you know! It came out brilliant and just like the ones sold in the malls! You’ve gotta try this out! 🙂
A serving of sweetcorn kernels (uncooked)
Water just enough to cover the kernels whilst steaming and stewing
Spices : garlic chilli seasoning, oregano, dried chilli flakes
Seasoning : sweet chilli sauce, honey, salt
Heat the water in a pot and bring it to the boil. Throw in the corn kernels & let it cook in the water for 10 minutes.
By this time, the kernels are tender yet not mushy.
Add your seasoning and spices and let the kernels stew in this delicious liquid for about 5-7 minutes. Cover the pot and let it cook for 2 minutes. Turn off the heat.
Tip the contents into a serving cup and enjoy it, steaming hot! 🙂
