Quick Creamed Curried Corn

  1. Husk the ears of sweet corn and stand an ear upright in a skillet with the top pointing up. Use a sharp kitchen knife to slice off the kernels, working from top to bottom and rotating the ear after each cut. Use the back of the knife to scrape extra juices into skillet. Repeat with remaining ear of corn.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over the kernels and sprinkle with salt; place over medium heat and cook until corn is hot, about 3 minutes. Add garlic; continue to cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Season corn with cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, and garam masala. Cook and stir until corn is tender, about 2 more minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to low and stir Greek yogurt into corn mixture. Remove from heat, stir in chives, and season with more salt, if desired.

  • If cutting the kernels into a bowl, use an overturned ramekin in the bottom of the bowl to raise the cob up for easier cutting.

First saw this on Chef John's blog. What a terrific way to use late summer sweet corn. Delicious!

Based on both the title and the description, I expected corn in a curry-flavored creamy sauce (or curry-flavored corn in a creamy sauce, either would be fine). The result tasted only barely, if at all, of curry, and was not even remotely creamy. The first problem is that the yogurt curdled. If you look at the recipe photo, you'll see that this has happened there as well. In retrospect, this isn't surprising. Yogurt (even full-fat yogurt) doesn't have much fat, and will curdle when added to a hot pan if not properly prepared. Adding some starch (flour or cornstarch) to the yogurt beforehand can prevent this. The second problem is that the corn tasted primarily of garlic. I don't have a problem with garlic, but this recipe is called "curried corn", not "garlic corn". I followed the recipe with two exceptions: I substituted red pepper flake for the cayenne, and I omitted the chives.

I used this recipe as a guidance for cream curry corn. I didn't have the yogurt and the grama. Instead I used 1/2 cup of heavy cream and 1/3 cup of cream cheese. since I wanted curry I added about a teaspoon of curry power. turned out amazing!
