NOTES/TIPS

If the dough is watery, add little cornflour or maida.  This will help in binding and make the dough stiff.

Add chopped coriander leaves for more taste and flavour.

While grinding the sweet corn, ensure there is no moisture in it.

You can use frozen corn or fresh corn as the season permits.
