Sweet Corn Kurma (Sweet Corn Korma)

Sweet Corn Kurma Recipe
Sweet corn is my fav either cupcorn or just as it is boiled. My lil one loves it too so I pick up a pack whenever I see it. Last month I wanted to try a kurma with it and it turned out great with the combination of capsicum.


The ingredients list may seem long as it is for most kurmas but trust me it is worth the teeny weeny roasting and grinding tasks.

Serve hot with rotis or with any mild pulaos. Best when served after resting it for atleast 15mins so that the flavour gets well blended with corn and capsicum.

My Notes:
  • Adding milk is just to get a thick and creamier kurma, you can skip that too.
  • Toasting and adding capsicum at the last stage is just to retain its crunchiness.
  • Capsicum is purely optional but it gives a nice flavour to the kurma so I recommend adding it.
  • You can also make it more thick and gravy kind.

  4. @Kavitha : Yes I always deseed it as consuming more tomatoes with seeds on a daily basis can cause kidney stones - I've heard and read so!

    1. Coconut gives thickness to the kurma...we always add coconut to any kurma so added it.
