Creamy Corn on Toast

I'd bought 2 cobs of fresh, juicy corn and was in the mood to try n cook something new.....out of the depths of memory, the recipe for cream of corn soup suddenly gushed out....Inspired by that recipe but wanting something creamier and more substantial, i decided to cook corn with garlic and mash it up..n oh boy! super hot, creamy n with a hint of chilly n pepper, it was an absolute delight to eat...


Ingredients:

Corn kernels from 2 medium sized cobs (use corn off the cob for best results)
1/4 litre milk (this can vary depending on the corn n consistency you want)
6-7 garlic pods
6-7 peppercorns
chilli flakes and salt - to taste
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 teaspoons grated cheese (ideally, parmesan or cheddar)

Mehtod:

Heat the oil in a pan, add peppercorns and garlic pods and saute till the garlic gets all brown. Add the corn kernels and cook on high heat for a few minutes till the corn kernels swell up a bit and have just acquired a golden hue.

Add half the quantity of milk, reduce the flame and cook the kernels in the milk till they are soft. Cool it to almost room temperature and blend to a creamy consistency along with the cheese, chiili flakes and salt.
Return this mixture to the pan, add the rest of the milk and cook on a low flame till the milk is absorbed/you get the consistency you want.\

Serve hot with toast, crackers or chapathis :).

Note: To make this recipe richer, saute everything in butter, add more cheese and a dollop of cream right at the end.
