Corn Curry


Corn curry - a dish that I make only so often, but every time I do, it's a hit. I made this last night on a whim. I saw a can of tinned corn cobs sitting in the pantry, untouched for the past few weeks. I thought I'd make this to go along with the vaal-papdi and eggplant curry, daal, and chapatis for dinner. Here's the recipe:

Ingredients:
Corn on the cobs-boiled in salted water, or you can use canned ones like I did.
3 tbsp-crushed tomatoes, 1/2 cup roasted peanuts - powdered, 1- medium onion, garlic, cilantro, jalapeno, turmeric, salt, sugar, garam masala, jeera seeds, dhania powder, Oil for tempering.

Heat oil in a pan, add jeera seeds, onions, garlic, jalapeƱos. Saute till golden brown. Add the tomato paste and the roasted peanut powder. Stir until a nice aroma wafts from the mixture. Add some water, and all the spices. Taste and adjust accordingly. Add the cut corn on the cobs, stir and cover and cook on medium heat till all the spices and flavors come together, Garnish with cilantro and serve hot.
That's about it! A delicious side dish is ready for your meal.

hey Trupti, I normally make baby corn curry with tomato-cream based gravy but never tried corn with peanut gravy.

also wanted to ask you about the dhania-jeera you seem to use a lot in your cooking. Do you get it ready made or how can I prepare it at home ? I had to make the daal-dhokli and broccoli-methi without it :-(

Vani said...

I've not used corn on the cob in curries or anything else, for that matter! I make curries and bhaji from just corn though. Looks good, Trupti! I just posted a corn recipe today-corn and black bean salad.

shilpa said...

That looks beautiful. I will see if I can get hold of corn here. I think I will looove this dish

Trupti said...

Swapna: you bet...this is a tasty one!

Ashaji: thank you! Try this one and see if you and family like it!

Meena: thanks...please do try it, it is so good!

NZ: Hi! Yes, I get the dhania-jeera in packets from Indian stores, or you can buy the dhania and jeera powders and mix them in equal parts, they are an essential ingredient in Gujarati cooking...Hope you try this curry sometime.

Vani: yeah, this is a nice one to make as a side dish...too heavy to eat on its own, will check out your recipe.

Shilpa: please do...this is one that I like too!

Truptiben!
Kem chho? Could you please post your recipe for ringan-tuver, ringan-papdi,or ringan-chori ?
Thanks for filling the much needed void for Gujarati food in the Indian food blogospere...Tarlaben pachhi truptiben noj vaaro chhe :)

I'm actually south indian, but grew up in Baroda, so my cravings are always for gujarati food, and often recipes for homestyle gujarati food are hard to come by...so terrific to have you as a resource...

Take care, and keep blogging.

Thanks for visiting my blog Trupti. The Broccoli-methi curry turned slightly bitter - don't know if I did something wrong or is it supposed to taste like that. Anyways, I added some yogurt to neutralise it and it was yummmmm !

theculinarychase said...

Wow, this does look good. By the way, where do you get your spices & powders? I live in Hong Kong & find it's really hard to get these powders. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places! :) Cheers! Heather

Dilip UK said...

Hi Trupti

The corn curry looks yummy. Good way to use corn in gravies too.

Seema Bhat said...

oh wow trupti:
Your recipe of corn curry just came in time.I got 10 fresh yellow corns last weekend since it was on sale and finished 4 out of them and didnt know what to do out of the remaining.Now i am gonna try this recipe of yours and and will let you know how it turned out.
Thanx
Seema

Its really nice Trupti. Good change. Viji

Hemlata said...

Dear Trupti

How are you?

Seen your receipe Corn curry. It really looks yummy. could you please tell me if the whole corn can be eaten or you need to eat the outer part and discard the inner part.

Your reply will be much appreciated.
regards

Lata

Trupti said...

Hemlata: the inner part needs to be discarded because its not edible,as an option, you can make this curry out of either tinned or frozen corn without the cobs. Do try it, its a delicious side dish to any meal.
Thanks for visiting,
Trupti

Hi Trupti,

I tried this wonderful recipe today and it was a hit! Loved the aroma when the peanut powder is added to the gravy to cook.
