Baby Corn Korma - Baby Corn Recipes

Baby Corn Korma Recipe
Baby Corn Kurma is a great sidedish for chapathi or any mild pulaos.I wanted to try Baby Corn Kurma with coconut milk replacing coconut while grinding and it turned out to be great so wanted to have a record of the recipe with measurements so here I am with this post. Mittu loves baby corn so I try new recipes with it so that she doesn't get bored of the veggie, She likes baby corn gravy and baby corn fry the best.

This kurma is mild with the flavour of coconut milk that no one can say no to this kurma.Even amma who is not fond of baby corn loved the kurma and she couldnt resist that she even tasted the kurma when it was still boiling :)

My Notes:

  • Do not let the korma boil for more time after coconut milk is added else it will curdle.
  • You can replace coconut milk with milk too.
  • You can add 1/4 cup grated coconut and grind it along with other sauted ingredients and grind it, in that case skip coconut milk.
  • Adding kasoori methi gives a great flavour to the kurma.

  1. Hi Sharmi...looks yummy. Would love to try it. But does it taste good minus the cashews and can butter be replaced by refined oil?nee to watch the waistline you see

  2. Hi Sharmilee,

    Can we use the same recipe for paneer kurma too

  3. Hello Sharmilee Ji, i m the biggest fan of your recipes. Tonight i m going to try the above recipe for dinner. Can u pls tell me, 1)Do i need to slightly fry the baby corns before adding to the gravy? 2) Can i cook the baby corns separately in some water? 3) Can i use fresh cream and if yes, then at which step?

    1. 1.Yes if you prefer you can do that
      2.It is not needed but you can do...but I prefer cooking in gravy so that the flavours nicely blend with the veggie
      3.Add it along with milk or just before adding milk
      Hope this clarifies!
