Sweet corn masala recipe, side dish for chapathi

Sweet corn masala, an onion tomato based gravy pairs well with roti and pulaos. I have tried a sweet corn masala gravy once for Aval vikatan supplement. This method is almost similar to my Paneer butter masala recipe. Yesterday i saw a pack of sweet corn lying in my refrigerator,generally i pressure cook that with salt and have it as is. But suddenly i thought i will make a masala gravy with that, to pair with roti. It turned out well and it was creamy and yum.
My kids who are fond of Sweet corn, loved this sweet corn masala. I made some kulchas for the kids and we both had with rotis.

   Kasoori methi  2 pinches
   Cashew nuts  7-9

Method:
  • If using fresh sweet corn, pressure cook this by adding little salt and take out the kernels one by one.
  • Chop one onion into small cubes and the capsicum also into small cubes.
  • Chop another onion finely.
  • The remaining one onion chop roughly as we will grind this onion.
  • Chop the tomato into two and grind this in a mixie.
  • Soak the cashew nuts in warm water for 10 minutes. 
  • Drain the water and grind this into a smooth paste using the milk. Mix the remaining milk to this and keep this aside.
  • In a pan add 1 tblsp of oil and add the cubed onions and capsicum.
  • Saute this by adding little salt to this.

  • Add the red chili powder, cumin powder, coriander powder, salt and garam masala.
  • Add the yogurt to this. 
  • Cook this in a medium low flame for 10 minutes, till the raw smell disappears.
  • The gravy will splutter as it shrinks, so keep it covered to avoid mess around the kitchen hob.
  • Add the sweet corn now, and add 1/2 cup of water.
  • Let this cook for 10 minutes.
  • Add the cashew milk mixture now and simmer the flame.
  • Add the sauted capsicum and onions.
