Bhutte Ke Kees (Grated corn, spiced and cooked in milk)…saw the bhuttas today and after I had my fill of the roasted ones, decided to google and make this dish…the recipe is a mix of various recipes I found on the net...some add curry leaves, some sugar, some coconut, some skip ginger...I went with what I thought would suit our taste buds and it turned out pretty well…Thank you Google aunty once again!!
