Ginulay na Mais, Gulay na Mais

Ginulay na Mais, Gulay na Mais
Ginulay na Mais, Gulay na Mais. Not many know that corn can be cooked as a viand, the young white corn type. In the Philippine countryside where corn are produced, gulay na mais is a comfort food. The dish is made up of young white corn kernels that are cut off from the cob using a knife, or using the large hole of a grater. Sautéed with pork and small shrimp and simmered with a lot of water. Other leafy vegetables are also added usually malungay, chilli leaves, ampalaya leaves ect. For my version I added oyster mushroom and spinach. Here is the recipe.


4 young white corn on the cob
1 cup boiled pork cut into cubes
1 cup shrimp, shelled
160 grams baby spinach leaves
150 grams oyster mushroom
2-3 green chili
1/4 head garlic, chopped
1 small size onion, chopped
1 medium size tomato, chopped
1/4 cup fish sauce
salt to taste
cooking oil

Cooking procedure:

  1. I've tasted a variation of this before, but that was a looong long time ago in Dagupan. It's really good!

  2. Hi watson, I want to try also the dinengdeng version when I have the ingredients, thanks.

  3. I remember this! Ours was with mung bean sprouts, pechay and yes, shrimps. and although the corn that we used is not the sweet corn that everyone wants to devour, this soup is lovely.

  4. Hi ziggy, I might as well try it in the future.
