Varun's Vagaries

One big Potpourri

Recent Posts

Okay so I'll be sharing a recipe of mine today.In fact it makes two dishes.Delicacies? You try them and tell me.The thing is these get done in a jiffy,so you can catch that TV program in time :)

The Dish(es) we will make today will be good for an evening snack.Ingredients given are for 1 person.

Disclaimer: I've never used any measurements during my cooking.Ever.So the quantities I mention here will be approx. Use your discretion.In any case everyone has their taste.

Preparation time: 7 minutes


1 cup of soft corn (you'll get them at your local grocer).

1/2 a glass of fresh curd/yogurt

1 small block of cheese,grated (really,the qty for this is up to you.I use generous amounts)

1x chopped tomato

1x finely chopped onion

Some finely chopped celery (if available,if not,no worries)
some chopped ginger

2 tbsp white sugar/ 3tbsp white sugar powder

Salt,pepper,red chili powder,rock salt to taste.If you have chaat masala,excellent.


Take your corn in a glass bowl,and add water just enough to immerse it completely.Cover it and put it in the microwave for 45 seconds on max power.Leave some gap for the air to escape or else the water will boil over. In the meantime,add the sugar to the yogurt and salt/chaat masala if desired.Stir it to dissolve the sugar.
After 45 seconds,you will see the water reduced and the corn starting to fatten.Now add most of the grated cheese and cover it and put it back in the microwave.This time for 30 seconds.Once done,retrieve the bowl.Tilt it and drain all the cheesy water into the glass of yogurt we have there.
Next it's time to add whatever little cheese remains,and back in the microwave for 15 seconds.In the meantime,add some water to the cheesy yogurt and stir furiously.Plonk the lassi into the freezer while we complete our cheesy corn.
Take the bowl out of the microwave and add the salt,chili powder,pepper,rock salt,chaat masala for flavour.Add the chopped vegetables.Toss this grand mixture up nicely. If you like it,add some tomato ketchup or a couple of drops of soya.Another 5 seconds in the microwave should warm up and soften the vegetables.

Get your lassi from the freezer and you have your evening treat!
