Boiled Corn & Peas Salad

Corn and Peas makes a soft, yummy & right-sized veggie options for finger food recipes. They are small & soft enough for your little ones to bite and still big enough to hold between their tiny thumb & index finger (called the pincer grip). Pincer grip in babies develops post 8 months.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4th Cup American Sweet Corn
  • 3/4th Cup Fresh Green Peas
  • 2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Pepper Powder
  • Finely Chopped Coriander (optional for freshness)

You make this recipe within 10 mins in two ways.

Method 1 (Pressure Cooking - Quick & Easy):

  • In a small pressure cooker add 4 small cups of water
  • Add the corn and peas to it and close the lid
  • Let it whistle for 2-3 times
  • Wait for the pressure cooker lid to cool down and then open it in a way that the steam faces the other side.
  • Take out the boiled peas and corn in a bowl and keep this boiled water aside.
  • Sprinkle pepper and lemon to the corn and peas and mix well
  • Garnish with freshly chopped coriander
  • That boiled water should not be thrown; it contains nutrients and can be used to knead dough or as a soup starter.

 Method 2 (Steaming - Retains Max Nutrition):

  • In a steamer, add 2-3 cups of water at the bottom
  • Add the peas and corn in the steamer plate and close the lid
  • Let it steam for 10 mins
  • Take out the boiled peas and corn in a bowl 
  • Sprinkle pepper and lemon to the corn and peas and mix well
  • Garnish with freshly chopped coriander

Serve warm, and enjoy watching the pincer grip in action :-)
