The February month challenge in the ‘Shhhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge’ group was ‘Post Pregnancy Food’, suggested by Aruna. Well, I was partnered with Preethi Prasad for this theme, she gave me 2 secret ingredients Dalia and Cardamom, and I gave her the secret ingredients Dry ginger and Cumin seeds. And, as usual, using my two ingredients I have come up with this Dalia Kheer for the theme contribution.

  • 2 no. Corn on the cob
  • ¾ cup Cucumber (small cube)
  • ¾ cup Tomato (small cube)
  • ¾ cup Onion (small cube)
  • 1-2 no. Green chili (chopped)
  • Coriander leaf (chopped) few
  • ½ tsp Pepper powder
  • Salt as needed


Roast the corn on the cob –

  • Keeping all the husks attached to the cob, place both the corn on the cob over a oven-proof tray and microwave for 5-6 minutes. This will steam the corn.
  • Take out from the oven and discard the husks.
  • Then to get the char effect, just place over gas stove at medium-high heat, rotating in between till the chars are visible all over the corn.
  • or, directly roast the corn over the gas stove at medium heat, rotating in between till the corn gets roasted evenly. This process will take more time as compared to the above one.

Prepare the Salad –

  • Keep aside the corn on the cob to cool down completely.
  • Then using a knife gently slice the kernels off of the corn cob.
  • Add the corns to a mixing bowl along with chopped cucumber, tomatoes and onions.
  • Also add chopped coriander leaves, green chilies along with pepper powder, lemon juice, salt.
  • Gently mix everything using a spoon / fork till thoroughly combine.
  • Roasted corn salad is ready to serve !


  • Any method one can follow to roast the corn. I have mentioned some ways, pick as per convenient.
  • Adjust the spiciness as desired.
  • Any other ingredients like bell peppers, zucchini, etc can be added too.
  • Cheeses like feta cheese or even goat cheese also add a nice taste to the salad. Add if wish.
  • I have kept this salad super simple, if wish one can use some dressing in this salad too.

    The corn salad sounds very flavourful and the charred taste the roasting of corn must have added in. It’s a great idea to add in some mixed veggies too. 😊

    Sasmita you’ve given a wonderful idea! As you may know I don’t use microwave oven too often but cooking this corn in the microwave oven is so doable in my small Air BnB apartment. Going to do that before the season ends. As for the Roasted Corn Salad, with simple ingredients it is the yummiest. I love to have it as a light meal on its own.

    Simple salad but it is full of flavor, nutrition and good things ..the slightly charred sweet corns will give the salad a nice and mild smoky flavor

    Roasted corn salad is so flavorful. I usually make it with plain corn and next time going to try your way of roasting corn and then making a salad.
