Bhutte Ka kees / Corn Snack - Madhya Pradesh Special

Bhutte(corn) Ka Kees is an easy to make, delicious street food from Indore, Madhya Pradesh (a central state of India).

Madhya Pradesh cuisine is very new to me and I started exploring the same. Thus I came across this healthy and easy to make recipe. Its creamy taste with mild seasoning is worth a try and cherish. I have adapted the recipe from Vegrecipes of india

This recipe is my entry to the event "Shhh!!! Cooking Secretly" challenge conducted by Mayuri Patel of Mayuri's Jikoni. For the month of October, I have paired with Priya Iyer who blogs at ""; the ingredients given by her are Corn and milk.

Do try and give your feedback!
