Couple of days back when i was going through a article i got to know about nutritional benefits of babycorn 

and brought it from store the same day. Babycorn is a low calorie vegetable with 25 calories per  1/2 cup serving.Though i wanted to try salad out of it some how i ended up cooking babycorn fries and ended up in very high calorie diet :( .Apart from calorie count  this Babycorn 65 was so good in taste that plates were empty in no time. It is a perfect snack/starter.
