Fire roasted corn stir fry is a quick snack prepared with frozen roasted corn kernels. Roasted corn is stir fried for few minutes with onions and green chilies until flavors blend in. For corn lovers, this is an another way to prepare another variation of corn with fire roasted corn.
I love corn and can eat it in any form, anytime of the day. I usually have a stock of frozen corn in my freezer. I usually make buttered sweet corn or sauteed sweet corn and these are my go to recipes when I need to fix something for myself.
Even since I discovered frozen fire roasted corn kernels, it has replaced sweet corn kernels. I just microwave corn to thaw and season it to taste just like I do with sweet corn. Yesterday when I saw burnt corn stir fry recipe in my feedly posted by Viashali, I had to make it. I made them yesterday itself but decide not to take pictures as there wasn’t enough natural light. Made it again today on the pretext of the blog!
Whole Food sells frozen fire roasted corn and using these corn kernels makes this stir fry a jiffy and yet another semi homemade recipe. First day I used only green chilies and today both green chilies and back pepper powder to season the corn. Both tasted great! One can use a combination of green chilies, chili powder and black pepper.
