Sweet corn Kheer

Sweet corn (Zea mays convar. saccharata var. rugosa;[1] also called sugar corn and pole corn) is a variety of maize with a high sugar content. Sweet corn is the result of a naturally occurring recessive mutation in the genes which control conversion of sugar to starch inside the endosperm of the corn kernel. Unlike field corn varieties, which are harvested when the kernels are dry and mature (dent stage), sweet corn is picked when immature (milk stage) and prepared and eaten as a vegetable, rather than a grain. Since the process of maturation involves converting sugar to starch, sweet corn stores poorly and must be eaten fresh, canned, or frozen, before the kernels become tough and starchy.


Sweet corn kheer was specially done for this Diwali in my house. We loved the taste of it so much. I am sure its very healthy. Do try it at your home.

  • Sweet corn kernels - 1 cup
  • Milk - half litre
  • Low fat consed milk - according to the sweet of the corn
  • Cardamom powder -- 1/2 tsp
  • Saffron- few strands
  • Nuts optional ( I didnt add)
  • Ghee - 1 tsp


  • Grind the corn kernels coarsely. Keep few corns witout grinding.Soak the saffron in warm milk.
  • In a pan, add a tsp of ghee . Toss the ground corn and few corn left without grinding in ghee for few mins.
  • Add milk to it. allow it to boil.
  • Add the low fat condensed milk. Stir well.
  • Add the cardamom powder and saffron.
  • Mix well. Add nuts if desired. 
  •  Serve hot or chilled. Garnish with saffron strands.


Yummilicious kheer is ready to consume..
