Spicy-sweet curry corn saute

Author Notes

This is a variation on an appetizer that my French host mother served to my family when they came to visit me in Paris. It can be served hot or cold, as an hors d'oeuvre or a side dish. She made it with carrots sliced into coins, but I find that using corn makes it extra summery. —sugarbiscuitbakers
