Measuring cup used 1 cup = 250 ml

  • 1 cup sweet corn kernels fresh or frozen
  • 2 tablespoons shredded coconut fresh or frozen
  • salt as needed

For Tempering:


  • Boil sweet corn in very less water adding salt. Drain off excess water if any. Alternatively you can also steam it with a little salt .
  • Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add urad dal, red chilli and hing.
  • When dal turns golden brown, add green chilli and curry leaves. Saute for few seconds.
  • Add sweet corn and salt as required and toss on high flame for a minute.Then turn off the flame.
  • Add grated coconut, mix well again.
  • Sweet corn sundal is ready to be served as a healthy tea-time snack or make it for special festivals like Gollu (Navaratri)
  • You can add a few drops of lemon juice and garnish with coriander leaves if preferred.


  1. If you are using frozen corn then you can microwave for 2 minutes instead of boiling or steaming on the stove top.
  2. To make it more healthy you can add grated carrots too.
