Sweet Corn Sundal | Navratri Vrat | Dussehra Fasting Recipes

9 days of Navratri is synonymous to umpteen number of delicious sundals that are made in south india. From Chickpeas to Rajma to Moong dal, almost anything can be used in a sundal.

I have made some Sweet Corn Sundal for you all today. It is very simple to make, nutritious and a perfect way to break your Navratri fast. the sweetness from the corn with tempering and zing from lemon juice make it irresistibly tasty, perfect for breakfast or a mid-day snack.

Sweet Corn Sundal


2 cups sweet corn kernels
2 green chillies, very finely sliced
juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 tbsp oil
few curry leaves
1/2 tsp minced ginger
a pinch of asafoetida (hing)
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
salt - to taste


1. Place the corn kernels in a microwave bowl, sprinkle some water on the top and microwave for 3-4 minutes.

2. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard & hing. Once they start to pop, add ginger, green chillies and curry leaves. Sauce for a minute. Finally add corn. Mix well and cook for few minutes. Season with salt.

3. Turn off the heat and add lemon juice to the sundal. Serve. Optionally, you can sprinkle some grated coconut as well.

Hope you all are having a wonderful time with friends & family during this auspicious Navratri. :-)
