This dish has special memories from my childhood..When I was still in school and staying in my small lovely hometown, where every Thursday it is Weekly Market and corn used to be available only then! Mamma used to make this yummy dish then..now that I have to make it, the carving for this corn upma does not reduce a bit!!!

1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste
 
Preparation:
1. Run the sweet corn kernel in food processor with chopper attachment for 2-3 mins (no kernel should be left whole, but it should not turn in paste also)
