Here I am giving you a recipe of my favorite salad.

ROASTED CORN SALAD

This salad is very simple to make and very tasty too.

Roast whole sweet corn on the gas stove till you get black spots on it.
Remove the corn kernels with a knife
Add the finely chopped tomatoes, onions, cucumber, capsicum, coriander and green chilies to it.
Half tsp of lemon juice.
Add salt as per taste.
Eat with pulao or with any other rice preparation.

CORN:
Corn is the most abundant grain crop; worldwide , it is exceeded only by wheat as a cereal grain. Most of the corn is grown in the united states and Canada. Sweet corn , which is harvested while still immature, is the type consumed as a vegetable.

CORN AND NUTRITION:
Corn is high in starch and protein but not a suitable protein substitute due to lack of amino acids.It is a good source of fibre too .-(source food harms food heals)
POP-CORN: Air popped unbuttered popcorn is low in calories and very high in fiber.one cup of pop-corn contains only 30 cals making it an ideal high fiber snack.
