Sweet Corn Capsicum Curry Recipe

I have used sweet corn cob and pressure cooked for 5-6 whistles with enough water and little salt. Removed the corn kernels and used to prepare this curry. You can keep the left over sweet corn in refrigerator. If using frozen sweet corn, please follow the instructions given in the packet.

About Ingredients

Chop capsicum into big cubes instead of finely chopped pieces. Add capsicum 10 mins before switching off the flame as they get cooked soon. If you want crunchy capsicum pieces in the curry, then add 2-3 mins before switching off the flame.

This is not a vegan curry since we have used milk. For vegan version, try adding coconut milk or cashew paste which would give equally good result. Milk makes this curry more creamy so it pairs well with pulao or naan. You can additionally add tomato chili sauce which is a optional ingredient.

For tempering, I have used cold pressed (chekku yennai) coconut oil. Butter or ghee can be used for the same. We are adding tomato puree in the curry. You can use either fresh homemade or store bought puree. To make homemade puree, cook 2 big tomatoes in enough water for 10 mins, Remove off the skin and blend tomatoes in a mixer to smooth paste.

The two masala powders which have been used are Garam Masala and curry powder. Replace curry powder with plain coriander powder or paav bhaji masala. Adjust the quantity of pepper powder according to your preference. If you are going to add tomato chili sauce, then decrease the quantity of pepper powder mentioned in the below recipe card. Sweet corn capsicum curry is very easy to follow and not requires much grinding.
