Corn curry recipe

I know that you all had a great Diwali, we had a very good one too. I must say in this festival season everyone had eaten so many sweets and fried snack. So now it is time for comfort and healthy food.

This corn curry is very easy and quick to make. Procedure to make delicious corn curry very simple. Just grind all gravy ingredients in grinder. Then sauté paste for few minutes then add corn and coconut milk and cook for few minutes. Then your corn curry is ready to serve. Isn’t it very quick and simple? But I must tell you that it tastes so good with paratha. This is my hubby’s fav curry. I had made it about a week ago for dinner. I served it with paratha and sliced onions on side. So let’s get started.

**Notes –
  • Green chiliesamount of chilies is depends on how spicy you like. But keep in mind that this is the only which gives spicy flavor to the curry as we are not adding any dry spices.
  • Corn KernelsI have used frozen corn kernels. I had just defrosted it and microwave it (covered) for 4-5 minutes. If possible use fresh corn and boil it in microwave or stove top.
  • Coconut milkI have used thick coconut milk which is quite heavy. If you are using thin verity then use more (about ¾ -1 cup) according to your taste.
  1. Take all ingredients for gravy in grinder.
  2. Grind it into a smooth paste using little water.
  3. Heat the oil in pan on medium heat. Once hot add cinnamon stick and cloves. Let it cook for few seconds, you will get nice fragrance.
  4. Then add paste and cook it for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Cook it till all water part from paste evaporates.
  6. Then add boiled corn kernels. Mix well.
  7. Add coconut milk and water to adjust the consistency of gravy. Mix well.
  8. Cook it for 5 minutes uncovered with stirring in between. Then switch off the stove.
  9. Serve hot.

    Can we use regular milk instead of coconut milk?

    • Kanan July 18, 2014, 9:04 pm

      If regular milk is used then flavors will be totally different.

      Thanks for you feedback. I will sure try my best to post more curry recipes.

      You did not get thickness of gravy because it depends on quality of coconut milk. if yours is thin coconut milk than mine then you might get different consistency.

      I have used sweet corn for this recipe as I don’t get regular one here in USA. You can use normal or sweet corn whichever you like.
