This is super simple soup with very little ingredients. The corn is sliced thickly and cooked over night, when the cob core has turned soft and has released all its sweet juice, season the soup with coconut milk/ coconut milk powder and you are ready to enjoy the evening. While you can enjoy the kernel, you’ll be surprised you can chew the cobs too which releases sweet juice from the center. Children and toddlers just love this really light, thin vegetarian soup, its sort of ‘corn ka paya’.
