If you have been a regular follower and reader of my blog you would know that I have been really excited about the month OCTOBER since my last blog post. October is my favorite month because Its my Birthday month and also because of all the Festivals and Celebrations around. Through out the month, I feel each day is a Celebration. My Piri Piri Corn Salad with Wholewheat Pita Chips just show that the celebrations have begun.

P.S- My Piri Corn Salad with Wholewheat Pita Chips are spicy, tangy, and healthy.

As you know, I started my new section SALADS in the previous month. The Cucumber Ribbon Salad with Yogurt Mint Dressing was loved by everyone. On one hand where that salad was cool…sweet…and very summery, this salad is very peppy. It is spicy..tangy and is served with wholewheat pita chips for that extra crunch. You can also eat it as a salsa with any other chips of your choice. I preferred homemade wholewheat pita chips. In this recipe you will learn to make both the salad and the chips. You can use the Whole Wheat Pita Chips and serve it with Soups, Salsa and even Pastas. It is really versatile.

If you Love Amercian Sweet Corn you are surely going to love this salad. I have used a ready made Piri Piri Sauce to add in the spice to this salad. If you don’t have it you can also use Piri Piri Powder or make the sauce at home. The choice is totally yours. Now, whether you can make this sauce without any Piri Piri Sauce then my answer would be NO. I mean you will have a salad but it wouldn’t be a Spicy Salad anymore. However, if not this, I would suggest you to add a few chopped green chilies for the flavor.

This Salad tastes amazing with Whole Wheat Pita Chips. It balances out the spicy-ness of the Salad. You can serve it with a ready to eat chips of your choice if you don’t prefer making the Whole wheat Pita chips. These are fairly easy to make and are ready in no time. This salad can be well prepared before hand and served when desired. I am in love with these pita chips. They are made without yeast. I will be doing a pita bread recipe soon on the blog. You can surely replace the whole wheat flour with all purpose flour (maida). The quantities and the recipe remains the same.

Β Without much a do…lets begin with the recipe.
