I learnt this recipe while watching masterchef. This recipe is very simple and as a big fan of sweet corn I wanted to try something different. This dish was taught to one of the contestants of masterchef by a royal chef of a palace in Rajastan.
In this makai ki gravy sweet corn is simmered in milk with a light blend of spices to give it a unique taste. The dish I have prepared is ideal for summer. But to make it a winter dish we need to add cashew and almond paste. Which also makes it more rich.
- 1.5 cup sweet corn
- 2 cups milk
- 2 tbsp curd
- 1 tbsp ghee
- 1 tbsp garlic ginger paste
- 1/2 cup chopped onions
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 2 red chilli deseeded
- 1 tbsp cream
- salt to taste
Heat the ghee in a pan , add onion and saute it for 2 min on medium flame and garlic ginger paste and fry. To avoid the onion from changing color add little water.
Add sweet corn and curd, stir and let it cook till oil saturates. It will take about 5 to 7 min.Then add milk and cook till corn becomes tender.
Add salt,pepper and red chilli with cream and mix nicely at let it cook on low flame for 2 min, cover it for all the flavors to blend with the corn.
Then serve with roti or just have it as snack.
