CORN KI SUBZI

CORN KI SUBZI


Did you know that sweet corn, apart from its great taste that most people like, also has health benefits? I love sweet corn and elsewhere in this blog you will find recipes for a variety of dishes ranging from a Crunchy Corn Salad, and a Sweet Corn and Capsicum Stir Fry, to a Corn Methi Pulao.

Today's dish is adapted from Tarlaji Dalal's "Corn ki Subzi" a dish from Rajasthan, best served with rotis and chappatis.





Ingredients:
  • Sweet Corn kernels, boiled, 3/4 cup
  • Onions, roughly chopped 1 cup

  • Nigella Seeds, (Kalonji), 1/4 tsp
  • Salt, to taste
  • Turmeric Powder, 1/4 tsp
  • Green Chilli Paste, 2 tsp 
  • Coriander Leaves, finely chopped, 2 tbsp

Method:

First, in a mixer, grind the chopped onions, grated ginger and garlic together to make a paste. Keep aside
In a bowl, mix the whisked curds and the besan and keep aside
Heat oil in a kadhai, and when it gets hot add cumin seeds, nigella seeds and saute them on medium flame for just 30 seconds
Add the prepared paste of onion-ginger-garlic, mix well and cook on medium flame, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes
