The heat has reduced a great deal and Delhi's weather oscillates between heavy rain and sultry hot. Whether it is either extreme or somewhere in between, the last thing I'd want to do is toil over the stove. So, meals these days have simple sautes or even salads instead of a full fledged subzi.
I had a can of corn niblets and decided to use it one evening. This is a very simple salad flavoured with Indian spices. You can change the spices to suit your meal or palate. We'd been to Mussoorie 2 weekends ago and I was inspired by a roadside chana chat salad that we had while waiting in a traffic jam.
1 can (400g) Corn niblets
1/2 Red Capsicum, finely chopped
1/2 Yellow Capsicum, finely chopped
1 Onion, finely chopped
1 Tomato, finely chopped
1/2 tsp Green chilli paste
1/2 tsp Ginger paste
1/4 tsp Coriander Powder
1/4 tsp Cumin Powder
1/4 tsp Chat Masala
Salt and lime juice to taste
Coriander leaves for garnish
Mix all the vegetables with the corn. Add the pastes and powders and mix well. Add salt and lime juice and mix thoroughly. Garnish with coriander and enjoy!
