Baby Corn Masala (Baby Corn Gravy)

Baby Corn Masala Recipe – A simple restaurant style baby corn curry that pairs well with rice, pulao, biryani, roti. For this baby corn curry recipe, I just followed my paneer butter masala, one of the popular recipes on this blog. Baby corn can be used to make fried rice, baby corn fry, baby corn dry curry, mixed veg curry or veg makhanwala, can also be added to veg pulao or veg biryani.

To make baby corn masala recipe, I like to use baby corn along with other vegetables like peas, carrots, capsicums, or even with potatoes to add more flavor and taste.

However it is a personal choice, this recipe can be made using only baby corn and no other vegetables except onions and tomatoes.

If you want to make a quick baby corn curry, you need not blend the ingredients. If all that you want to make is a north Indian style baby corn gravy, you will have to blend the sauted ingredients to get a gravy.

To get a restaurant style smooth gravy, don’t miss using few cashews, blending it, adding kasuri methi and cream will enhance the flavor, texture and taste.

You can serve baby corn masala with
Plain paratha
jeera rice
