Corn and Cucumber Chat.

Corn and cucumber Chat/Kosumbari can be served as one of the side dish during feast/festival lunch/dinner.
Corn and Cucumber kosumbari/chat/salad can be eaten just before the lunch. It can be eaten at dinner time too. It is stomach filling and energy giving dish. Corn isfull of carbohydrates and helps to stay strong for a long time. Cucumber is dietary fiber and helps the food to digest easily.
I have used boied corn, small cucumber, pepper and chat masala.
It is easy, simple and quick to prepare, you can stuff them into chapati and have chapati roll.
OR]
You can spread on bread and have as sandwich. No need to add any butter or ghee. It will be one of the healthy salad that can be eaten at any time of the day.

Things needed :
Corn : 1 cup
Cucumber : 2
Coriander leaves : 2 to 3 sticks.
Pepper powder : 1/4 tea spoon.
Chat masaala powder : 1/4 tea spoon
Salt : to taste
Potato chips : 1/2 cup ( option )
Method :

1.Wash corn and boil with little water. ( very little water ) Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Let it cool.
2 Cut or great cucumber
3. Mix cooked corn, coriander leaves, salt, pepper powder and chat masala powder.
4. Mix well and serve You can add any potato chips if you like. (Optional)


Note :
Can use jeera powder instead of chat masala powder. Can use Sev ( fried item ) instead of potato chips or you can use roasted papad or roasted groundnuts. (Healthy option). Check cucumber that it is not bitter content. Use of pepper helps to avoid cold. (Eating cucumber might cause cold in some people). I have not used any fried items or nuts since we had this one as one of the side dish during our lunch.
Time : 10 Minutes
Serves : 2 to 3 .
