"Fusion Cuisine"- Corn Kulchizza!! / Corn pizza on a Onion Kulcha

How cool is that??? Yes, I came up with that name!!
 A pizza made with "Kulcha" as a crust.....Kulchizza!
Yesterday ,we had our weekly playdate for the kids and I had made "Masala Butter Corn" on toast for the kids. I had made plenty of the corn and we had leftovers for dinner.
Masala Butter Corn......I had it when I visited India last month.At 'City Pride' theater..they had a stall which served this. They steamed the sweet corn kernels, added chili powder,salt,chaat masala, butter and a squeeze of lemon.

The steaming hot- sweet corn with all that spicy masala..ummm umm yummm.....definately made the movies more interesting!!
For dinner......I put together this Kulchizza with frozen Kulcha ,the masala butter corn, ketchup,some chopped onion and cilantro and cheese on top.
Since the Kucha is already stuffed with onion and spices....it makes a very flavorful pizza base/crust.
You can top it with any toppings of your choice.

2 cups frozen-(thawed to room temp) corn kernels

Looks Mouthwatering...isn't it???
Yet another masterpiece from Shyam kaka! He had shared this unique "Spring onion and Egg Pakoda" recipe before- http://my-kitchens-aroma.blogspot.com/2011/10/aroma-from-guest-kitchen-guest-shyam.html and Yesterday....he amazed me with these golden crispy-crunchy-spicy-nutty Bread wadas!
Kaka loves to try out new recipes and this was one such trial and it came out super delicious!!

I couldn't even tell.......these were made with bread!!! They were so unique in taste.
You can mould these with a hole in the center like "medu wadas" or just like plain wadas. The texture is so crispy-crunchy you will surely make everyone wonder....how they are made!
The nuts/ cashew makes them nutty and gives them a extra crunch...

Shyam kaka said this recipe comes from Chef Harpal Singh Sokhi.
Here is his recipe video from Youtube-
