Sweet Corn Curry with Peas Pulao

Sweet corn is much loved in our home and in all forms especially charcoal roasted corn on the cob (butta) with a mixture of salt, chili powder and lemon juice sprinkled over it. Nehal is fond of creamy corn with pasta or corn fritters while Satish and I like to relish it in the form of a curry with roti or flavored rice. With a lot of fresh corn cobs sitting in my fridge, thanks to a dear friend, I went on a sweet corn binge for a couple days. Made bread pizza with sweet corn, steamed corn cobs, vegetable au gratin with corn being a star player, corn vadas with lots of coriander and sweet corn curry to go with peas pulao.

    yummy recipe sailu.sweetcorn,mamulu mokkajonna okatena?pls clarify my doubt.

    • Sailu | Indian Food

      Indian variety of mokkajonna are not as sweet as the American sweet corn. You can use native variety of corn kernels or American sweet corn kernels. I used American sweet corn.

  • Adam

    Delicious. Thx very much.

  • Susan

    I have 2 questions: Cumin powder is listed in Methods, but not in ingredients. Does anyone know how much to use? Also, ingredients says 5 cashews. Is this correct? 5 individual cashews? Thanks!

    • Sailu | Indian Food

      Pinch of cumin powder will do. Yes, it is 5 individual cashew nuts.

  • Nalini
