Cooking is one of my passions. I like to make nutritious and tasty foods at home.
Vegan Corn Curry Made With Coconut Milk
An Awesome Side Dish Made of Boiled Corn Simmered in Coconut Milk
Corn curry is an easy to cook, simple side dish. It took me about 30-35 minutes to make. You can use fresh or frozen corn kernels in this dish. Juicy corn makes this curry sweetish and crunchy.
I made this curry in two parts. First, I made a paste of coriander leaves, onion, coconut, cashew nuts, ginger, garlic, green chilies, and lemon juice. Next, I made the gravy using boiled corn, the ground paste, coconut milk, and whole garam masala spices (or garam masala powder), and salt.
This vegan side dish has a unique aroma of coriander leaves, spices, and coconut. Eat this creamy and crunchy curry with flatbread, poori, roti, fried rice, plain rice, etc.
Now, let me share the detailed recipe.
