Boil or cook the corn till soft and tender.

*I cooked 4 whole corn ears in Instant Pot for 10 mins on Manual mode NPR.

Once cooked, allow them to cool down.

Grind the corn along with coconut, green chillies, tamarind paste, asafoetida and salt.

You don’t need to add water since the corn has the necessary water content.
