    • Welcome to my site. Hope my recipes will be of useful to you. Corn Meal is the broken corn (corn rawa) only. It is available in most of the grocery stores in Chennai. Hope it may be available in all other places too. If you do not get it in your place, just buy dry whole corns and send it to mill for grinding it like rawa. Sieve it and use it.
