Fresh Corn Upma.

Corn-Uma-2, originally uploaded by gems7882.

Hello Hello Hello....:) Guess today I am too excited about updating my almost dead blog...:P Its been like 2 months I have not updated my blog or added any new recipe. So Lets make this a fresh start hoping I will continue adding new recipes to my space. This recipe which I am going to post now is called fresh corn upma and its my favourite. I ate this first at a gujrati friends place...when I was in Mumbai...around 10 yrs back. It was so creamy n yummy. I always wanted to try making this dish... but simply forgot about it as time went buy.

One day my DH got some fresh corn from the grocery stores...which were directly dumped in the fridge...for later use. Few days back when I was cleaning my fridge i found these poor ignored things.... I was wondering maybe I can make a soup.... hmm but soup with 3 corn on cob will be too much for 3 people.... so Soup wont do.
Whatelse can I make with this? That when I remember this yummy recipe for Corn upma. I have tried to remeber a 10 yr old recipe and tried it. It turned out pretty good. If u have any suggestion of additions I can make to this recipe... Please do suggest...:)

Fresh corn peeled n cleaned and Grated - 3
Onion - 1/2 chopped
Carrot - 1/2 cup grated or finely chopped
