  3. In a heavy bottom pan, take some olive oil and add long sliced onion to it.
  4. Crush the garlic pods and add it to the onion.
  5. Once the onion turns translucent, add the corn seeds to it.

  8. Once the corn and pepper are cooked, take a hand blender to blend the corn and capsicum into a smooth paste.
