You all know by now that I will be participating in the Indian Food Bloggers(IFBM) meet this Friday. Yup, I am very much excited regarding the same. Most of my close friends know by now the cause of my happiness these days. I have been cooking, blending and baking a lot of things. Thanks to the contests happening at IFBM. It made me think and innovate. I was able to make time despite the hectic schedule just to ensure that I participate in these contests.
There is another exciting contest happening at IFBM. It is the Freedom Tree Baking Contest where we have to bake a dish with fresh corn. Ahh, this was a real challenge for me as baking is a subject where I have to learn a lot. I thought I’ll wait for Eid holiday to make something exciting. I had seen a post of Savory muffins on the Internet and since then I wanted to try it. I modified the original recipe and this was the best opportunity for me to try this Savory Veggie Corn Cheese Muffins recipe. So today evening I went out shopping with a list of ingredients that I would need.
When I saw that all the shops in my layout are closed on account of Eid, I thought I’ll give up. I bought American Corn on cob from the local vegetable vendors with some hope to find all purpose flour somewhere. I had almost given up when at 7.00 PM my neighbor, a friendly Sardarji aunt came home. I told her about the IFBM and the contests. She told me some recipes with corn. She does not know to bake but she gave me several ideas, like kababs and rolls.
I told her about the corn muffins and she liked the idea. Just then I told her that I don’t have maida at home. She said “Don’t worry, my son is gone to MORE megastore, he will get”. She called him immediately and asked him to get a packet of maida. Done, now was the task to bake something interesting. I extracted the corn kernels from the cob and wiped up the ingredients. The Savory Veggie Corn Cheese Muffins are getting ready in the microwave.
My hubby is working late in office despite it being a public holiday. I just pinged him and told him, that I have baked something interesting, come soon. It is 12.00 AM and I am waiting for him to come home and taste these muffins.
