Okra And Baby Corn Curry


         Sometimes, cooking with the same vegetables repeatedly is a little boring, mixing it with another vegetable or dal gives it a different shade. Adding baby corn to the okra, gave a nice crunch to the otherwise slimy texture of okra. Adding lots of onion and tomatoes gave a nice taste to it..

Need To Have
  • Okra - 2 cups chopped
  • Baby Corn - 1 cup chopped
  • Onions - 2 chopped
  • Tomatoes - 2 big chopped
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Chilli Powder - 2 teaspoons
  • Roasted Cumin Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Kasuri Methi - 1 tablespoon
  • Mustard Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Cumin Seeds - 1/2 teaspoon

Method
          Saute the okra in oil, until almost cooked, add the baby corn pieces, half of the turmeric powder and salt and saute for a few more mins. Remove and keep. Now heat some oil add the mustard and cumin seeds, once they stop spluttering, add the kasuri methi, onions, saute for 5 mins, then add the tomatoes. Add the remaining turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt, saute well till the tomatoes are well cooked. Now add the cooked okra, corn and the cumin powder, mix well and serve. This goes well both with rotis and rice.

Sending it to Food Corner for the Hot And Spicy Treats event.

Note
Adding some roasted cashews or a dollop of fresh cream will make the dish even richer.
