Basic Ingredients Used to Make this Recipe:

The basic Ingredients to make Corn Koshambari are,

Sweet corn: Sweet corn is the main ingredient, adding a mildly sweet and crunchy texture to the salad. It provides carbohydrates, fiber, and a natural sweetness. I have used fresh corn, which I have boiled by adding a little salt and water. You can use frozen corn if you want.

Pomegranate: Pomegranate adds sweet and tangy flavor, along with vibrant red color. It’s rich in antioxidants, and vitamins, and adds a juicy, refreshing element to the dish.

Coconut: Use freshly grated coconut for the best result. However, you can use frozen shredded coconut. It complements the sweetness of the corn and pomegranate while offering healthy fats.

Fresh herbs: Use freshly chopped coriander leaves.

Lemon/Lime juice: Lemon or lime juice adds a tangy kick, making the salad taste even better and keeping it fresh.

Tempering Ingredients: When you cook oil with mustard seeds, curry leaves, asafoetida, and dry red chili, it makes the salad taste more interesting. Mustard seeds give a little crunch, curry leaves and asafoetida add nice smells, and the red chili can make it a bit spicy if you like that.
