Bhutte ki kees




Bhutte ki kees is a very famous street food from indore. Traditionally it is made from fresh and soft corncob.

"Kees" means grated so it is basically grated corn snack.

It is a cereal grain which was first grown by people in ancient Central America. It is now the third most important cereal crop in the world.

Bhutta/corncob has 125 to 150 calories. It is a power pack with fibre . It helps to keep our digestive system healthy.

You can simply roaste and eat. Use in your salad, curry also make pakoda form it.
Maize flour can be used in various dishes.
You can also make halwa or kheer as well.

I tried to make it 2-3 times and at the last it turned out to be perfect in taste and texture.  Here I am sharing a healthy and delicious bhutte ki kees recipe.

Traditionally some jeeravan masala is added which enhances the taste.

If you don't have the famous indori jeeravan masala powder then you can add some chat masala as per your taste.
I garnishished it with pomogrante seeds, which is optional.
It is  easy to make at home.

You need very few ingredients. It is a quick delicious snack recipe and you can make it for any occasion like kity party etc.

If you don't have fresh corn you can make it with corn kennel, just grind it to a paste and use the same.

The bhutte ki kees is a 'no onion garlic' stir fry dish.

For serving, you need some chopped coriander leaves,  grated coconut, lemon juice and some chat masala.
Always choose soft milky corn of the cob.
I had it once when I visited indore, the taste was awesome.

  3. Hem Lata Gujarati cuisine too has a similar dish but we call it makai no chevdo, no idea why. My mum use to tell me that it's traditionally made from white maize as before hardly any yellow maize was sold. Its a delicious snack and love how you've served it with grated coconut and pomegranate.
