Waxy Corn / Jagung Pulut

Dear Diary,

I bet all of us know or recognize CORN. In addition to that, I’m sure at some point of our lives we’ve eaten or tasted corn in various forms. There are sweet corn, baby corn, grilled corn (jagung bakar), popcorn, corn in cup, corn ice cream, canned corn and many more.

What I want to share with you today is a different type of corn. Waxy corn or jagung pulut is a unique corn with distinctive taste. It is smaller in size compared to sweet corn but bigger than baby corn.

My sister in law bought some waxy corns so that the kids and I can have a taste. I eagerly tried one because I never saw or taste jagung pulut before. When I bit into the corn, it tasted like sticky rice or pulut. It’s like magic hihi! It was kind of a weird experience eating this corn because visually you are eating corn but taste wise it is like you are eating pulut. Something different! Furthermore, you’ll quickly feel full after only eating one corncob.

There is a weight loss diet that I am on called Amylose Free, which allows waxy corn. I can't find it in Orlando, Florida, and it seems that waxy corn is almost impossible to find in the USA. Thank you so much for the information and pictures!

Mummy Nana - Memang pelik la bagi i. Rupa jagung tp rasa pulut. If my sis-in-law tak beli, i pun tak tahu benda ni wujud.

Ermayum - Unai rasa susah nak cari jagung pulut ni.

Marty - Glad to be of help to you. Hope you find the information that you needed.

I'm still amazed with my Amylose-Free Diet...I don't know your weight conversion, but in 8 weeks I have gone from 180 to 155 pounds! can eat NO root vegetables (carrots, potatoes, radish...) but onion and garlic are OK, NO sugar (Splenda and the other artificial sugars are OK), NO grains, but quinoa is OK and NO long grain rice (waxy/sticky rice is OK), NO corn (waxy/sticky corn is OK), and NO bananas. Meat, lots of vegetables and fruits, and the allowed things are fine. It's an easy diet and I feel like I am cheating daily with such variety. What a great diet!

Hello dear, I moved to Malaysia from China for work and I've been trying to find waxy corn in Malaysia for the longest time! May I know what kind of places may I be able to find this?

Thanks!

Anonymous - Maybe you could try Asian grocery shops or chinatowns. The ones I ate was bought by my sister in law. If I'm not mistaken, there came from Thailand. If you're in Alor Setar, you can try and find them in Market Koboi.
