Corn is grown extensively in the Punjab region, where it is used in many delicacies. Corn bread, makki ki roti, along with spiced mustard greens, sarson ka saag, is a combination that is hard to beat. Here, corn is cooked in a thick, rich onion sauce, in another classic Punjabi dish.
Serves :

Preparation Method :

  • Cut each corncob in half, using a heavy knife or cleaver to make clean cuts and avoid damaging the kernels.
  • Heat the oil in a karahi, wok, or large pan and fry the corn until golden brown.
  • Remove the corn and set aside. Remove any excess oil, leaving about 30 ml / 2 tablespoons in the wok.
  • Grind the onion, garlic, and ginger to a paste using a mortar and pestle or in a food processor.
  • Transfer the paste to a bowl and mix in the spices, curry leaves, and granulated sugar.
  • Heat the oil and fry the onion paste mixture over low heat for 8 - 10 minutes until all the spices have blended well and the oil separates from the sauce.
  • Cool the onion paste mixture and fold in the yogurt. Mix to a smooth sauce.
  • Add the corn and mix well, so that all the pieces are covered with the sauce.
  • Reheat gently for about 10 minutes. Serve hot.
