A popular street food recipe from Indore and Bhopal, “Bhutte ka Kees” is made from grated grains of corn, which is then cooked in milk and spices. It is a mix of sweet and savoury flavours and tastes absolutely delicious.
Ideally, to make Bhutte Ka Kees, you need Desi Bhutta or corn, not American corn. Desi Bhutta is currently in season, which makes this recipe perfect for trying this monsoon. For this recipe, you will need bhutta with more milky and raw kernels. To check if the grain is milky, put a knife or toothpick in the kernels and if it is full of milk, the grain is perfect.
5 tablespoons ghee
3 medium sized corn
1/4 tsp asafoetida
3/4 teaspoon mustard seeds
3/4 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 tablespoons chopped green chillies
1 tablespoon grated ginger
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

1 teaspoon coriander powder
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup water
Salt to taste
2 tablespoons chopped coriander leaves

Tip: If the corn is very sweet, you can reduce or eliminate sugar altogether.
