Sin-A-Mon Tales

A chronicle of my kitchen experiments, a little healthy a little indulgent

Corn chilli muffins

I love savory bakes. Besides serving as a brilliant breafast option they are also healthier than the sweet variety. One can cut down on sugar and still enjoy the baked goodies 😀

Sometime back I had got about 2 kgs of fresh yellow cornflour from a friend’s farm, I made yummy makki ki roti’s and corn breads etc but there was still a lot left so I decided to experiment with muffins using it. Just took the corn bread as a base and worked around the recipe in my head to suit it to muffins. I was clear I wanted something spicy and hence added some green chillies and some red chilly flakes and also thought a little crunch would be good so added some corn kernels and chopped onion, some cheese for that extra kick and I can happily say that the result was delish… everyone enjoyed it for a hearty Sunday breakfast

Recipe – Corn chilli Muffins

What I used

  • 1 1/2 cup yellow corn flour
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • Salt to taste (I added 1/2 tsp as I added cheese too)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup corn kernels
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 green chillies finely choppe
  • 1 tsp of red chilli flakes
  • 1/2 tsp of dried rosemary
  • 1/2 cup grated mozeralla cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Baking powder – 1 tsp

How I made it

  • Mix both the flours along with salt and baking powder and keep seperate
  • Beat eggs along with milk. Add this to the to the flours and mix till incorporated, if u feel the batter is thick add a little more milk
  • Fold in the chillies, onion, herbs and corn kernels
  • Bake in a pre heated oven at 190C for about 15 minutes or till done
