Corn on the Cob Curry

When I went to India to my In law's house, they have a cook at home, he used to make this curry and whenever he made this, I just loved it. Since then I am making this and every time I love it.  I made it with corn on the cob, but if you don't like it that way, you can boil the corn and take it out corn kernels and make this gravy and make it. Both way it tastes awesome. By boiling the sweetness of the corn is comes out and it gives very nice sweet and spicy taste while eating with roti. I made it when my in-laws was here and we all loved it. Hope your family will also love it. If you try any of my recipes, love to hear from you.

Ingredients : 

3 whole corn, cut it half

for the Gravy:

1 onion
2 tomatoes - make sure you take tomatoes not puree - that gives a different taste, I use homegrown backyard tomatoes and taste awesome.
2 tbsp. peanuts
2 tbsp. red chili powder or as per your taste
1 tbsp. Turmeric powder
1 tbsp. ginger, chili, garlic paste
salt to taste
1 tbsp. cumin-coriander powder
1 tbsp. garam masala powder
Lime juice and chopped coriander leaves for garnish
3 tbsp. oil


Cut the corn in half and pressure cook it for two whistles.
Take it out and when its cold, cut it in small pieces, From one half, you can do it three pieces.
Let's make a gravy.

In a blender, add onion, tomatoes, ginger-garlic paste, peanuts and make a fine puree.
Heat a big pan, add oil in it.
When it's hot, add the puree in it and cook till all the water is gone and puree leaves oil.
Add all the powder masala and salt in it and add corn too.
Add 1/2 cup of water and mix it nicely. If you need more gravy, add a little more.
Let it cook in that gravy for 10 minutes on medium to low flame.
When it's done or you get your satisfaction on thickness of gravy, shut it off.
Sprinkle lime juice and coriander leaves before serving and enjoy with hot rotis or rice.
