Nepali Corn Pudding

Sikkim is a landlocked state in Northeast India, bordered by Nepal, Tibet and the Indian state of West Bengal in the south. Nestled in the Himalayas, it has a diverse climate with sub-tropical temperatures in the South and regular snowfall in the North. Their hot springs are known for their medicinal value.

Sikkim’s economy is based in its farming of ingredients like oranges, corn, wheat, millet, tea and cardamom. Sikkim is India’s largest producer of cardamom. The southern region is known for their tea plantations. The capital of Sikkim, Gangtok is a popular hill station, a name given by the British for high altitude summer retreats from the hot lowlands.


Kangchenjunga, located in Sikkim, is the third largest mountain peak in the world.

Sikkim is the least populous state in India, with a majority Nepali population. Most of their cuisine is rooted in Nepal and/or Tibet.

  1. Never heard of corn kheer before. It looks very appetizing. Have to try it. Mir, grinding a few of the kernels to a paste may help thicken the kheer without altering the taste.

  2. Pudding looks rich and yummy. To me, as long as it has corn in it, I don't care what consistency it has. I love corn no matter how it is served; cold, warm, thin or thick consistency .
