Low Calorie Savory Corn Muffins

Being more of a salt person.. than a sweet person, I have always wanted to try some non-sweet savory muffins.. Yesterday, while I was getting ready to make the usual corn muffins.. I suddenly thought, what best than trying the non-sweet muffins with corn meal. Love the outcome.. !! I will be making these low fat, low sugar, snacks very often from now on.

1 Box Corn Bread/Muffin Mix ( I used Miracle Maize Country style)
1 tomato (finely chopped)
1 onion (finely chopped)
2 Chillies (finely chopped) adjust as per taste
1 tsp Black mustard seeds
1/2 Tbsp oil
some salt (adjust per taste)
Preheat oven to 400F (or as suggested on box). Mix the ingredients and prepare batter as per instructions on the box(mine suggested using 6 Tbsp of oil for the entire box which seemed a little much to me.. so I used only 4 Tbsp, the muffins were not oozing with oil.. and that was a good thing.. :)). Keep the batter aside.

Heat up a small pan, add the oil. When its hot, add mustard seeds, chopped chillies, onions and tomato.. Saute for about 5 minutes. Add salt to it. Stir and then add this mixture into the corn muffin batter. Mix it up well, fill up the muffin tins and bake as per instructions on the box. (Usually about 15 - 20 minutes at 400F). These tasted a little like Dhokla.. and my son enjoyed them immensely. And I didnt feel bad about giving him the 4th...5th...6th one.. Enjoy..!! Made 48 mini muffins.

Serve as a teatime snack, a quick grab n go breakfast/snack or as an appetizer at a party with ketchup or any vegetable chutney. Yummy.. savoury corn muffins will vanish in no time.. :)

This goes to the Sunday Snacks - Grab n Go event that I am currently hosting.
