Baby Corn Masala
How can I miss on my favorite baby corn recipes in my blog? I love trying new recipes and eating new dishes, of course vegetarian. Sometimes I do modify a recipe to my liking.
I was bored making regular dishes with the available vegetables here. Open the fridge to see the same veggies every week, O sometimes it becomes so unexciting to cook, wish we get those avarekalu, tondekayi, shamegedde, boodgumbalakayi…. here too.
Soon I realized I don’t have much of a choice. But yet I wanted to make things interesting u see…so decided to try out my own recipe something tangy and colorful with baby corn and peppers.

Let me not bore u guys with my personal touch in every post ;). So here comes the recipe.


Baby corn- 165gms
Green pepper - 1
Red pepper-1
Ginger garlic paste -1/2tbsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2tbsp
Pinch of turmeric
Pinch of hing
Dhania powder - 1tbsp
Red chili powder (I prefer using Kashmiri mirch powder) - 1/2tbsp
Amchur –1tbsp
Lemon juice
Coriander leaves finely chopped
Besan-2tbsp {dry roasted on low flame for 2mins or until the raw smell disappears}

  • Cook the baby corn in pressure cooker or in MW and keep aside. After it has cooled cut baby corn into circles.
  • Heat oil in a pan on high heat, add cumin seeds and wait for it to crack and then add ginger garlic paste, turmeric, and hing.
  • To this add both the colors peppers and fry on high flame till the peppers are almost ( but not completely) cooked and then lower to medium heat.
  • Add the cooked baby corn to this mixture along with salt, dhania powder, red chilly powder and mix well for a min.
  • Then add besan and mix till it is coated well. Now sprinkle amchur powder, mix it for a min and take off the heat.
  • Top it with some lemon juice and fresh coriander leaves. Baby corn masala is ready to be served with chapattis.
