Who wouldn’t like sweet corn? I made this, sweetcorn & pomegranate salad, as a snack for my kids and they just loved it, as sweetcorn is one of their favourite veggies.

Do try this and your kids wouldn’t leave the plate without having for one more serving! 🙂

Kosambari is the name given to South Indian Salad seasoned with mustard seeds.

I made these colourful lettuce wraps, by using the same salad and few additional ingredients.
