Method
1. Cut the baby corn into two and set aside. Make a puree of the tomato and set aside.

6. Add the turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder and mix well. Cook for a couple of minutes.


7. Add the fresh cream and mix well.
8. Now add the chopped baby corn and mix well with the masala. Add the green peas too (I forgot to add at this stage)


9. Add 1/2 cup of water, cover the pan and cook until the corn and peas are done.
10. Add the chopped coriander leaves, mix well, check for salt and switch off.

Notes
1. You can skip the cream if you want a low fat gravy. I wanted to make the dish rich hence added the cream.
2. You can pressure cook the corn and peas and add it to the gravy. This will reduce the cooking time in the pan.
3. You can adjust the consistency of the masala. If you want more gravy, add a little more water.


Until next time,
