Grind green chillies, coconut and ginger into a coarse paste without adding any water; keep aside.

Heat oil in a Kadai; add all the ingredients under "For Seasoning" one by one.

After it crackles add the grounded paste.  Sauté this in low flame for a minute till the raw smell goes.
Now add cooked corn kernels and salt; continue mixing till it is mixed properly.
