GOLDEN delights

EVER SINCE the American corn invaded the Indian market, people here have developed a taste for this delicious, sweet 'n' yellow corn. It's no wonder then that Bangalore has a restaurant that specially serves you delicacies made of this delectable variety of our favourite butta. Corn World in Koramangala specialises in preparations of this golden corn, be it as a bake or in the Hyderabadi 65 masala.

The small snack bar on Raheja Arcade Road is sedate in its dιcor, but offers delights such as corn samosa, corn cutlet, Thai corn tikki, and corn spring roll. The preparations are served in numbers of two or four generally. However, the corn franky, with a corn filling wrapped in a pancake, is a single piece at Rs. 20. While Corn World serves you the popular corn preparations such as roasted corn on the cob and steamed corn on the cob, some others such as corn 65 are certainly out of the ordinary. A dry preparation with corn (deep fried with batter and then stir-fried in masalas, curd, and capsicum), albeit a bit greasy, is delicious. It goes well with the corn biryani, mildly flavoured and made with golden corn kernels and served with raita.

For the health conscious, Corn World serves two salads — American sweet corn salad (made with onion, capsicum, and bell peppers and served with a dash of chaat masala) and the Thai corn salad with vinaigrette dressing.

The eatery, which serves only vegetarian food, serves preparations with a Chinese twist too, such as the corn dry manchurian (typical manchurian preparation made with corn balls) and baby corn chilly dry (batter fried pieces of baby corn, stir fried in sauce and spring onions).

Other snacks that one finds at Corn World are the typical pizza, burger, cheese bake, chaat, but all made with corn as the main ingredient. Something really unique is the corn halwa, a preparation made with crushed corn, ghee, and sugar. Much like any other Indian halwa, this one is easy on the palate but it takes getting used to.

With simple tables and chairs, Corn World is designed as a place to stop by for a quick snack. Everything on the menu is priced between Rs.10 and Rs. 25. Corn World also serves milkshakes, icecreams, mocktails, fresh juices, and a variety of sundaes and desserts.
