Fresh Sweetcorn (Sunshine on a plate)





Sweetcorn, Makai, Kanees, Bhutta ! Steam it ,boil it, or roast it! Call it by any name eat it in anyway ,it is just as delicious. Who doesn't like it? Most of us have childhood memories of having eaten Bhutta or Kanees on a rainy day at a hill station roasted over charcoal fires. The smoky flavour of the charcoal that lingers on the roasted corn is so earthy that it cannot be achieved by any other means of cooking.


I clicked this pic of corn today morning during the mad rush of packing lunch boxes. I had just placed the corn on the counter and was filling up a saucepan with water to boil these when all of a sudden the thick cover of cloud in the sky broke and sunshine poured in from the kitchen window drenching the corn in dazzling golden rays. They looked so amazing that I had to rush for my camera and go clicking. I clicked it in natural sunlight with my Sony DSC-P73.


This is therefore my entry to Bee and Jai's event Click ; an event devoted whole and sole to photography. The theme for April is
Au Naturel in which participants are asked to click pictures of food in it's most natural form. I think it's an awesome theme and hope they like my pic.
