SWEET CORN TOMATO RICE

Even she is inspiration to me to start the blog... Already I tried Wheat biscuits from her space... The rice was really very tasty n aromatic...


Little About Sweet Corn

Sweet corn is the result of a naturally occurring recessive mutation in the genes which control conversation of sugar to starch inside the endosperm of the corn kernel.  It is harvested when the kernels are dry and mature and is picked when immature and prepared and eaten as a vegetable rather than a grain. Sweet corn stores poorly and must be eaten fresh, canned, or frozen, before the kernels become tough and starchy...
