  • 10 oz or 2 cups Frozen Sweet Corn
  • 3 small Green Chilies chopped (approx. 1 ½ teaspoon when chopped and adjust to taste)
  • 2 big fat Cloves of Garlic crushed (approx. 1 tablespoon crushed)
  • ⅔ - ¾ teaspoon Salt or adjust to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon Cumin Powder (opt)
  • 1 cup Nonfat Yogurt
  • 2 tablespoon Fat Free Sour Cream (opt)
  • Chopped Cilantro for garnish


  • Cook frozen sweetcorn in a covered saucepan along with green chilies, crushed garlic, salt and some water (approximately ¼ cup).
  • When corn is tender, uncover and cook until water evaporates.
  • Let corn cool, add rest of the ingredients, including sour cream and mix well.
  • Garnish with cilantro and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Serve as a side dish with grilled meats or as a light snack. In the above pictures, I served it as a side dish for a veggie burger patty on a bed of lettuce.


  • Options to Cook Corn - Take sweetcorn in a microwave safe bowl, mix green chilies, crushed garlic, salt and some water and microwave for 3-4 minutes until corn thaws and is tender.
  • If using low fat or whole milk, can skip sour cream.
