BABY CORN COOKED IN RICH TOMATO GRAVY.Last week when we all went to a North Indian restaurant for lunch we ordered a Baby Corn Masala which we have never tried before in that place. We all liked it very much and we went for veggies shopping and my daughter picked the cute baby corns in the vegetable section and asked me to make a masala with that.
I tried to recreate the same taste but i almost it was like that(my daughter said) and we had a great dinner with rotis and a salad(recipe coming soon)

I used the Everest Kitchen King Masala and it gave a wonderful flavour to the curry
