About Mint and Chilli Cornbread Muffins Recipe

Much as we all love freshly baked yeast bread,this version of bread has been made by Native Americans for over thousands of years.There is no yeast used in this bread and its made with 60% corn meal or what is called Polenta.Polenta is readily available abroad but in India is seen in big departmental stores in metropolitan cities or can be available on many shopping sites online.Buy the instant version if possible.If Polenta is not available then you can use semolina(rava) for the bread. I decided to make breakfast Muffins out of the basic recipe.Muffins are a wonderful treat for breakfast and these contain all vital nutrients the body would use throughout the day.Its a great idea as kids would also want to have them as they look super cute with puffed up tops which would be dripping with melted butter when you hand them over.

  3. In another bowl or jug mix together the yogurt and milk and break eggs into the jug as well.Whisk till well blended.Now pour the liquid into the dry ingredients and mix with the whisk till thoroughly incorporated.
  4. Do not over mix as the muffins will not rise to the full length.
  5. Spoon the batter to 3/4 of each cup and bake for 18-20 minutes till firm on top and a skewer or knife inserted inside comes out clean.Cool on a wire rack.
  6. Serve warm with plain or herbed butter/cheese or cream cheese for a great breakfast!
