Baby Corn Dry Masala Curry

Whenever I feel bored of following an elaborate procedure for making a curry, I choose to make a dry curry where I use ready-made masala powders. Not having to grind your spices/ingredients saves your time. Dry curries are equally as healthy and delicious as the soupy ones. Choose vegetables diligently for these curries. There are certain vegetable combinations that are perfect for making this dish. Let me show you one such mouth-watering combination: baby corn dry masala curry.

Overview of the Recipe:

For making the baby corn dry masala curry, first you have to par-boil baby corn in just sufficient water. Next, heat some oil in a deep-bottomed pan. Throw in cumin seeds. Let them crackle. Add chopped onions and fresh/frozen peas. Saute on medium-high fire till onions turn transparent. Add chopped tomatoes. Continue sauteing till tomatoes become soft, not mushy. Add par-boiled baby corn. Throw some salt. Stir-cook on low fire for 3-4 minutes.

Add garam masala powder or curry powder, coriander seeds powder, red chili powder, a little sugar, and the remaining salt. Mix well. Stir-cook the mix for 1-2 minutes. Add finely chopped coriander leaves. Mix well. Turn off the fire. Baby corn dry masala curry is ready to serve.

Transfer the curry into a serving dish. Serve it as a side dish for rotis, chapatis, pancakes, less spicy rice dishes, curd rice etc. Enjoy eating!
