Sweet corn sundal recipe. This quick to make sweet corn sundal can be served any time to your kids for evening snack, in the lunch box or even for breakfast along with bread or roti. Sometimes I run out of ideas for the kids’ evening snack. Just like most other kids mine too love to eat sweet corn in any form.
I sometimes use this sweet corn sundal even to make kathi rolls or sandwiches. A green chutney goes well in the sandwich or kathi roll.
Sundals are usually prepared during some festivals, but they can also be had anytime as a snack. You can make this sweet corn sundal using frozen sweet corn or corn on the cob. If using corn on the cob, then you will have to boil them until tender and use here.
To prepare this, you can use fresh grated coconut or frozen coconut. I have pulsed fresh coconut bits and used here as I find it easy that way.
