Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons oil

  • 1 to 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

 Method

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium high heat, Test the heat by adding one  cumin seed to the oil; if the seed cracks right away, the oil is ready.

  3. Add corn, cabbage, celery, tomato, and three cups of water. When it boils, turn the heat down to low medium.
  4. Cover and cook 25 to 30 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.
