India meets Mexico in this Indo-Mex Mexican Street Corn Chaat – all that chatpata desi flavor tossed with creamy sour cream.

India meets Mexico in this side dish. Street Corn is a popular side dish in both India and Mexico, so how about a fusion twist to combine both these recipes into one. I’m sharing my Mexican Street Corn Chaat which is the perfect side dish for a BBQ or Potluck party.

What is Mexican Street Corn Chaat?

Indian Street Corn is typically roasted and spiced up with chat masala and other spices. The corn is then tossed with bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and green chilies. Indian Street Corn is usually spice, whereas Mexican Street Corn is smokier. Additionally, Mexican Street Corn is spiced up and tossed in mayo (I used sour cream instead). 

Can I make this recipe vegan?

Yes. Simply replace the butter and sour cream with vegan butter and vegan sour cream.

Tips on making Mexican Corn Chaat:

  • Finely chop the veggies.
  • Cook the frozen corn in a pan and cook it until it’s slightly browned. Ideally, you should use a cast-iron skillet.
  • Toss the veggies and corn together. 
  • Flavor with spices and add a little sour cream for creaminess. Make sure you add the sour cream to room temperature corn to avoid curdling.
