A new delicacy- Corn Shots
It was during my recent dinner outing at the newly opened cafe- Tapri Ashram at Marriott, Jaipur that i discovered an interesting delicacy in their menu called “corn shots”. I am a big fan of anything related to corn, be it a pizza or a sandwich or pasta so it was inevitable to try this novel dish. I enquired about this canapé, which is when the big secret was revealed- corn shot is basically our very own puchkas (gol-gappas) with a filling of corn, mayonnaise and cheese. This was an unimaginable combination of two of my most favourite things- corn and puchkas.
One plate is priced at 140 rupees and had 9 corn shots, which is quite a fair deal. This delectable and easy to make savoury can be a scrumptious starter for any party. Especially in the army fraternity where we are on a constant lookout for new recipes, this can be a perfect item in the menu for an elaborately planned house warming to a quick tea party and it barely requires any culinary skills, a big relief for cooking novices like me 😊
Here’s the recipe-
2. American corn
5. Chilli flakes
6. Mozzarella cheese(grated)
7. Coriander(finely chopped)
1. Make a mixture of American corn and mayonnaise.
2. Take a puchka and make a hole. Fill it with above mixture.
3. Top it with grated cheese, oregano, chilli flakes and coriander leaves.
Your mouth-watering corn shots titbits is ready, with a preparation time of less than 10 minutes.
