Sweet Corn Gravy – Sweet Corn Curry

April 24, 2020 Dals/Gravies  No comments

While we are all still staying at home, am trying to make food more interesting with the limited ingredients available in the pantry or at the stores. This Sweet Corn Gravy is one such recipe. I have never tried a gravy with sweet corn. Well before that I am not a big fan of sweet corn so I seldom buy it. I had grabbed a bag of frozen sweet corn before the lockdown, just because frozen peas was not available. So now it justifies why I am here with this Sweet Corn Gravy recipe. It turned out really well, sweet corn in spicy gravy. We liked the sweet-spicy combo. Do try my Peas Masala or Methi Matar Malai recipes if you want to use Peas instead.
