3 Ulam Ideas to Enjoy Corn with the Family

3 Simple Ulam Ideas to Enjoy Corn with the Family

Corn is the perfect accompaniment for any meal—and we’re not just talking about your mom’s famous black bean and corn chowder or your dad’s cheese enchiladas. Corn as a whole has a number of health benefits, but we’re focusing here on one in particular: corn is chock-full of fiber. And fiber is essential for a healthy diet because it helps you feel full longer, which means you’ll be less likely to overeat and gain weight. Here we’ve listed corn ulam ideas for your family to enjoy!
