Course Breakfast, brunch
Cuisine spanish


  • 1 cup corn Kernels
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup semolina
  • 8 - 10 Cloves garlic Around
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 5 - 6 jalapeno Freshly chopped (if you don't have them use about 2 green chillies)
  • 1 tbsp parsley fresh
  • to taste salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper Freshly ground
  • 1/3 cup tomato salsa
  • 1/4 cup water cold (optional, use as needed)
  • 6 eggs large


  • Roast corn along with garlic and 1 tsp of olive oil wrapped in a foil in the oven for about 15-20 mins at 200C, till the corn just starts getting browned,
  • Let it cool a bit and in the meanwhile get the other stuff ready.
  • Mix both the flours (whole wheat & semolina), salt, pepper, parsley and jalapeno together.
  • To this, add the roasted corn and garlic. Add the salsa to bind it together. The mixture should just about come together. If you think its not coming together add a bit of cheese to it. The original recipe asks for cheese but I didn't have any good cheese in the house that day so I decided to give it a skip and frankly I didn't miss it much.
  • In a greased muffin pan now line this mixture in a 1/4 inch thick layer. Use silicon if you have. It will make the task of removing the shell along with egg out a lot more easier.
  • Bake the shell at 180C for about 15 mins, till it feels set.
  • It will shrink a bit post baking, don't worry about it. Now break one egg in each of the baked shells/cups. Sprinkle salt and pepper if you want. N says a bit of green pepper on them would have been lovely. I loved it as it is so please do take your call and bake them again at 180C for about 10 mins for a perfectly runny yellow. If you want a little more harder baked egg, bake it for another 5 mins or so but remember it will also harden the shell a bit.


All of us at home loved eating this. O was so excited that he can eat the shell too. It seemed like such a good idea to him that I am thinking next time I will chop some veggies in it too. Sigh I know its the mother in me!
