Apart from this curry, I make corn capsicum curry which has onion tomato gravy and Corn palak gravy.

I usually buy a big pack of corn cobs from the Costco. And half it I just boil them and keep in the freeze for snacking. With rest I make different recipes for breakfast or meal.

1) If using fresh corn cobs then boil into the pressure cooker for 2-3 whistles and then remove the kernels. Alternately you can use canned corn kernels, in that case you need to drain out all the liquid completely. Or use the frozen kernels, in that case you need to boil them in microwave, pressure cooker or in boiling water. Keep in mind that frozen kernels takes less time to cook compared to fresh one.
