Corn Masala in my Style

They say necessity is the mother of invention and this holds true for this recipe of mine. My In Laws love Corn but are unable to enjoy eating it as they want to because it gets stuck in their teeth's. I worked a way out and invented this dish. It tastes yum and is easy to make.


Medium Sized Corn / Maize - 2
Onions - 2 finely chopped
Ginger & Garlic Paste - 1/2 Tbsp
Tomato - 1 Finely Chopped
Jeera - 1 Teaspoon
Salt - To Taste
Chilli Powder - 1 Tsp or to taste
Dhaniya Powder - 1 & 1/2 Tbsp
Garam Masala - 1 Tsp
Cilantro Leaves
Oil - 1 & 1/2 Tbsp

How to

To begin with put the corn for boiling. I had used the normal corn, broken it into two two pieces, pressure cooked it and then removed the kernel. You can even buy the ready to use kernels and boil them.

While the corn gets boiled, we can start the gravy. Add oil in the kadhai, heat it & add jeera. Once it splutters add the ginger garlic paste and after a minute add the finely chopped onions. As they turn pinkish brown add all the spices besides garam masala. Cook it for 2-3 minutes and then add tomatoes. Cover them for 3-4 minutes and once the tomato is tender bhuno the masala till the oil seperates.

When your kernels are ready put them in a mixer and makes paste. How fine you want the paste to be depends entirely on you. You can leave it on a coarser side or you can make a fine paste like I have done. If you ask me a little coarser one tasted better.

Add this paste to the beaming masala and bhuno the whole thing. Add garam masala and garnish with Cilantro leaves and serve either with hot roti's or parathas.

Now I will let the images do the talking.
