Low fat creamy Sweet corn curry

My Diet phase is back . I normally go on diet without compromising on taste . Otherwise we would get bored of eating what we dont like and drop it half way . Oh yeah Did I tell you I have started some cardio too ... Oh this simple cardio for 40 mins a day is something I am passionate about of late . Lets see how much I lose coupled with not so strict diet in a month ..

My sweetcorn in the fridge was nearing its expiry and that i needed to finish it off . I have been seeing lots of sweetcorn curry floating in the blog and most of them are very rich and creamy . Then I came up with my own version and it tasted extremely extremely good . You can indulge in without any guilt and can still thoroughly relish it.



Ingredients :
  1. Sweet corn - 1 cup
  2. Onion - 1 big
  3. Ginger Garlic paste - 1 tsp.
  4. Tomato - 1 big
  5. chilly powder - 1 tsp.
  6. coriander powder - 1/2 tsp.
  7. cumin powder - 1/4 tsp.
  8. kasoor methi - 1/4 tsp.
  9. Skimmed Milk - 2/3 cup
  10. corn flour - 1 tsp.
  11. oil - 1 tsp.
  12. salt to taste.
  13. sugar - a pinch
Method :
  1. Heat oil in a non stick pan , once it is hot add chopped onions and fry until it turns brown colour.
  2. Add ginger garlic paste and fry for a minute.
  3. Add chopped tomato , chilly powder,coriander powder,cumin powder,salt and a little of water and fry until tomato is completely mashed.
  4. Now add boiled sweet corn and milk and corn flour dissolved in water and simmer it completely for about 8 mins.
  5. Finally add kasoor methi .

Notes :
  1. Kasoor methi gives a total flavour to the gravy.
  2. Adding a sugar is a must to get that creamy taste.
  3. cook on sim after adding milk otherwise milk might get curdled .
