Sweet corn dal

Sweet corn is a cereal with high sugar content unlike field corns these sweet corns are picked when immature and prepared and eaten as vegetable rather than a grain.

Sweet corn is loaded with lutein and zeaxanthin which promotes healthy vision . The insoluble fiber in corn feeds good bacteria in your gut, which aids in digestion and helps keep you regular.

Now let me stop lecturing about sweet corn and get onto the recipe.

Adding sweet corn to the regular dal gives a little different sweet taste and when consumed the whole corn it tastes amazing . I added some spice and garnished with healthy and rich seeds and nuts for flavor and uniqueness.

Today’s dal has got no onions or garlic. And for uniqueness have added flax seeds and walnuts as mentioned before.
