Corn With Aromatic Seasonings

3 tablespoons olive oil or 3 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon whole brown mustard seeds or 1 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
4 whole green cardamom pods, lightly crushed
4 whole cloves
1 cinnamon stick, 1-inch long
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon finely grated peeled fresh ginger
1 -2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh green chile (do not discard seeds)
2 (10 ounce) bags frozen corn, defrosted and drained or 4 cups fresh corn kernels
1 teaspoon kosher salt
14 cup heavy cream


Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. When it shimmers, add mustard seeds, cardamom pods, cloves, cinnamon stick and bay leaves all at once (combine in a small bowl first). When the mustard seeds pop, 10-15 seconds, add ginger and chiles and stir. Stir for 30 seconds. Add corn, stir well, and cook 2-3 minutes. Add salt and cream, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Reduce heat to low and cook 2-3 minutes until cream is absorbed. Remove and discard cardamom pods, cloves, cinnamon stick and bay leaves before serving.
