Rainy Season Brings Pleasure and Happiness with the Drops Falling from Heaven.
The monsoon is heartily welcomed by everyone, as the season brings relief from summer months. The climate is cold and the tongue needs some hot and spicy. If anything truly defines the flavour of Indian monsoons, it is this bhutta.

The bhutta (Corn) season is officially on. We would grill a corn on the cob apply ghee, salt and lemon juice and eat. Its tangy salty charred taste was satiating and thoroughly enjoyable in the rainy season. Though corn is a summer crop, it is mostly relished in rains.

And come to think of it, it is perfect for the season too. It’s definitely a far better bet than the fried samosas and bhajias that we tend to veer towards when it rains, plus, you’ll be surprised to know just how nutrient-packed it really is.

Corn is rich in pantothenic acid, thiamine and niacin. A good source of folic acid, vitamin C and beta-carotene, it also contains phosphorous, magnesium, zinc and iron copper and selenium in traces.

All these nutrients, help prevent heart disease. It increases your mental ability and boosts your memory, as it contains thiamine. Consuming corn also helps lower cholesterol and prevents colon cancer. You can add corn to your diet. This tiny food is loaded with lutein and zeaxanthin, two phytochemicals, which helps improve eye health. A cob of corn has about the same number of calories as an apple and less than one-fourth the sugar. In other words, it can be one of the healthier foods. Apart from these benefits, your favourite monsoon snack Corn is a great source of fibre that aids in digestion. Add a cup of yellow corn to your diet, to fill your body with 3.6 grams of dietary fibre. This fibre will help control your hunger and aid in weight loss.

Quick Ideas To Serve: Besides corn on the cob that can be relished roasted or steamed, try corn bhel, grilled corn sandwiches, corn patties, corn samosas and baked corn too.

Feeling adventurous? Whip up corn biryani, corn frankies and corn spring roles. Or maybe you can have a homemade pizza today with lots of corn sprinkled on top.
Too lazy? Just toss steamed corn kernels in an olive oil-salt-pepper-herbs dressing and bite in as you watch rain go pitter patter on the window shields.
