Baby Corn - Carrot Potato Stir Fry

My grand parents celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary a couple of days ago. I guess I have never written about my grand parents in this space before. I share a very close bond with both my grand parents & I grew up being really close to them. They make a lovely couple, graceful & matured with age. My family looks forward to celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary 3 years from now & wishing them many such years of love & togetherness. Love ya both :)

I have been opting for simple foods lately & this mixed vegetable stir fry is a perfect example. What initially was supposed to go into a rich Korma, turned into a simple stir fry. Nice tender baby corn with some nice juicy carrots & lovely green peas is quite a combination.

There is really nothing new about this recipe, its really really simple to make, with some basic stuff. I added a bit of dried rosemary for that nice hint of herbs.

You Will Need:
  • 1 cup Baby Corn - Quartered & cut into thin strips
  • 1 cup Carrots - Cut into thin strips
  • 2 potatoes - cut into thin strips
  • 1 cup green peas - fresh/frozen
  • 4 -5 chopped green chillies - low to medium spiced
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 2 tsp oil
  • Salt as per taste

Method:

  • Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan, add mustard seeds & allow it to pop & splutter. Add chopped green chillies & saute for about 20 secs
  • Add carrots & potatoes & saute for a couple of minutes. Sprinkle some water & add a little bit of salt & close the lid. Keep sauteing in between to avoid them from getting burnt.
  • When the carrots & potatoes are half done, add baby corn, Add a tsp of oil & close the lid again & keep sauteeing in between.
  • When the vegetables are almost cooked & firm, add green peas & let it cook.
  • Add dried rosemary & check for salt. & mix well

Serve with HOT rotis or fried rice .. Enjoi !!!

We loved biting into those crunchy baby corn. The tender carrots & green peas were quite a contrast & added a nice bite. Next time, I might even add some french beans to this. We had this with some warm rotis & enjoyed a simple meal.

NOTE:

  • Replace green chillies with red chilli powder & add a hint of Garam Masala instead of dried rosemary
  • Make sure that the vegetables are not overcooked & mushy. They taste good when they are crunchy & firm

Congratulations and best of luck to your grandparents. Both sets of my grandparents were fun and nice people too.

Your stir-fry looks really good. Very few dried herbs work for me, though. There's even a rant on my blog somewhere about them.
