Baby Corn & Green Peas Curry

Wednesday, December 03, 2008

There is something about Baby Corn. I am sure, most of you will agree with this one. You will very rarely come across someone, who dislikes Baby Corn.

While looking out for a Baby Corn recipe, I came across this dish on Monsoon Spice. The moment I saw the picture, I knew this would be our lunch the next day.

Baby Corn & Green Peas is a killer combination. They compliment each other really well. Let me tell you that this curry is relatively dry as compared to the regular Baby Corn Masala but it really goes well with most dishes.

If you love Baby Corn, this is for you.

Preparation Time: 30 mins

You Will Need:
  • 12-15 Baby Corn - cut vertically into 1 inch pieces

  • 1/2 tsp Garam Masala
  • 1/2 tsp Kitchen King masala
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1 tbsp Oil

Method:

  • Boil baby corn juliennes in heavily salted water with turmeric for about 10 - 12 minutes. Baby Corn should be tender fork.

Serve with Rotis/Pulao/Biryani/Jeera Rice. Enjoi !!!

We had our with some plain paranthas, rice & yogurt. It was one wholesome meal for the weekend. This recipe is a definite addition to my list regular recipes. It will definitely be making this again.

How about you trying this for lunch today?

NOTE:

If you do not want to use yogurt, add an additional tomato for the tangy taste. I have added yogurt to get a creamier texture as this dish is rather dry.
