Jhola Gola/Corn stirfry

A delicious stirfy made of sweet corn which doubles up as an accompaniment to rice or can be had as a Chaat. Jhola is corn and gola is bringing together. So literally it means corn and a variety of seasoning brought together. . Similarly Gola can be made of fresh peas or tender Rajma. This recipe is a traditional one handed down to my friend Suchita Kamath by her mother.


250 gms Sweet corn

2 green chillies chopped fine

1 sprig curry leaves

1 tbsp Ghee

1/2 tsp mustard

A pinch of Hing/asafoetida

Juice of half of a small lime

1 tbsp grated coconut


1 tsp sugar

A pinch of Turmeric powder

Coriander leaves for garnishing


Pressure cook the sweet corn with salt. Keep aside. Heat the ghee in a pan. Drop in the mustard. After it splutters, add the finely chopped green chillies, hing and curry leaves. Toss. Drop in the boiled corn sugar and Turmeric powder along with the water in which it is cooked. Cover and cook till the water is absorbed. Add grated coconut, lime juice and coriander leaves. Mix thoroughly and serve hot.
