Sweet Corn Sundal / Sweet Corn Guggillu

Happy Dussera to all my friends and family. During these navaratri we pray all the 9 avataras of goddess Durga. We keep Bommala kovulu (Kolu ) and make various varieties of food including Sundals.
Sundal, also called as guggillu in telugu is prepared during navaratri to offer to goddess Durga. It is usually prepared with lentils and legumes like peanuts, channa, black eyed peas and also can be prepared with Sweet corn, rajma etc.

Sweet corn sundal is a very easy and super tasty sundal and this is kid's most favourite among all sundals. You can make it cutting the kernels from fresh corn and can also use frozen corn.

2 cups of Sweet Corn (Frozen)
3 tablespoons Grated Coconut
1/2 Carrot (Optional)
1 teaspoon Lemon Juice (Optional)
Salt as needed

2 teaspoons Oil
1/2 teaspoon Mustard
1 Green chilli
1 Sprig Curry Leaves

  1. If you have fresh corn, boil corn in water 10 min and then cut the kernel. If you are using frozen corn, boil corn kernel for 5 mins. Remove the excess water and keep it aside. Cut green chilli into thin circles. Cut carrot into small pieces. 
  2. Heat a pan with oil, add mustard seeds, when they splutter, add green chilli, curry leaves and carrot, saute for a min. Add boiled corn, mix and fry for 2 mins.
  3. Now add salt and grated coconut, saute for a min. Finally add lemon juice.
  4. That's it Sweet corn sundal is ready.
