Konda loves Sweet Corn Butter Chat so for want of a better inspiration I thought I will simply make it into rice by tweaking the recipe a bit to suit for rice preparation. I followed the same method for making the chat, except the kernels didn't have the ready made chat masala and I ended up making my own chat masala, which Konda said was good. She eat some for her breakfast and packed for snack period, plus she took the rice for lunch. I can say it's an overdose of sweet corn for her today, but she simply loves it, so no worries.
I had some for tasting and I must say it tasted a wee bit spicy, but then Konda eats spicy food these days. I was really reeking my mind for an idea for the last two days and this came to mind in the last moment. It's almost like a fried rice as you end up frying everything.
