Mais at Patola

Today I used patola and some eggplant in combination of grated sweet corn. The combination of patola and sweet corn is not new, some provinces in the Tagalog Region regularly cook young corn with patola or any other available for that matter. They are sometime called suam na mais or ginulay na mais.
