Baby Corn Pepper Fry Recipe - Baby Corn Stir Fry with Pepper

Baby Corn Pepper Fry Recipe
Baby Corn Pepper Fry is my recent trial though I have tried this recipe with other veggies like mushroom and gobi.I love anything pepper flavoured and mittu takes after me so I make sure to add pepper powder in most of the dishes I cook for her lunchbox either for stuffing for parathas or for any rice or even for pulaos....I try to replace red chilli with pepper where ever possible, she loves pepper flavour very much so she doesnt complaint at all.I actually started to buy baby corn regularly only after mittu started to like the veggie so whenever I see a pack of fresh baby corn I buy it.

Check out other baby corn recipes that I have posted already.

Serve hot with rice / roti or enjoy it as a appetizer like I did :)

My Notes:

  • You can even pressure cook baby corn and add it but I prefer cooking it in pan itself so that the flavours get nicely blended.
  • When you cook covered , make sure to flip over in between.
  • Adding capsicum gives a nice flavour to the fry so I recommend adding it.
  • Serve with rice / roti.
  • You can try the same recipe with cauliflower, mushroom, carrot etc.
