WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CORN & MAIZE?
My friend, not much.
Both refer to the same cereal grain.
Corn is American English & Maize is British English.
But maize is an accepted scientific term for corn.
Confusing us further it is said all maize is corn but not all corn is maize.
Maize is a food crop(grown on the field) while corn is a harvested food(what you see in the market)
In culinary, the corn is described as sweet corn, popcorn, corn flakes, baby corn etc.
ROASTED SWEETCORN WITH CHARCOAL
A typical roadside preparation in India.
It’s known as Bhutta and charcoal is used to roast it.
Indians just love it.
Tastes excellent as you savor it hot, in chilly weather.
Butter, salt or lemon can be added to enhance the taste
Very popular in hill areas.
Roadside eating is common during monsoon.
Said to be good for the eye, hair and skin.
Since it has a high carbohydrate content one must eat in moderation.
