My favorite sidedish !

Yes...especially when you eat this with warm rice, by using your bare hand. Mmmm.... nothing compares to that ! I can say this is one of my comfort food. Remind me of my mom, home, rural atmosphere, paddy field, serenity (stop, before I digress any further !)

This is a kind of dish that can increase my appetite only by looking at it ! I put it in my menu list, our family favorite dish. Easy, heavenly delicious and cheap ! :) Take a look at the recipe and have a nice try.

It's funny, I usually eat it with rice which contains carbohydrate, while corn is carbohydrate as well. Just watched ads from TV about carbo-diet, let's forget it for while okay ! Because it's simply savory.
