Mixed Vegetable Instant Corn Chaat | Salad


Know What You Eat: What food is more synonymous with summer than freshly picked corn on the cob? You must be thinking why we talk about summer, when temperatures are below 50 degree F., well, instant mixed Corn Chaat is a healthy option for anytime snack, all the ingredients that are used in this recipe are most commonly found in your refrigerator, so why not enjoy this special corn chaat in any given weather..Corn fiber is one of the keys to its well-documented digestive benefits.Fiber and protein are key macronutrients for stabilizing the passage of food through our digestive tract. Sufficient quantity of this  content in a food helps prevent too rapid or too slow digestion of that food. Different varieties of corn highlight different combinations of antioxidant phytonutrients. In the case of yellow corn, carotenoids lead the way and provide especially high concentrations of lutein and zeaxanthin. Lets talk about this recipe now, as I said almost all the ingredients are mostly found in your home, that I have used are cabbage, carrots, scallions, cilantro, lemon, and mint. You can use this recipe as a side dish, anytime healthy snack etc. Check the recipe below.
