Lemon Chilly Baby Corn

 Lemon Chilly Baby Corn 

The pandemic has impacted our productivity and inspiration to work immensely. I am no stranger to this experience as I took a hiatus for the same reason. Getting back on track has been difficult but it isn't impossible. I joined a group of food bloggers Healthy WELLthy cuisines and relied on them to help me find my lost inspiration. The group decides on a theme, based on which every member has to share a recipe every fortnight. Not only did the idea narrow my horizons and gave me a deadline but also helped me learn from all the other members. This fortnight's theme was monsoon and so I present to you Lemon Chilly Baby Corn.

This recipe was inspired by a restaurant Yellow chilly we visited a long time ago. The dish had a delicious sour and tangy combination and I tried to reticulate that. Monsoon is the weather of love, bickering and mischief. The tangy taste in this dish brings out those elements of monsoon and makes it the perfect companion to rain. So the next time it rains, prepare some Lemon Chilly Baby Corn and a cup of warm tea and enjoy the moment with your family and loved ones.
