Baby Corn Malai Subji Recipe

Baby Corn Malai Subji Recipe
Few months back I planned to make baby corn gravy with chapathi for mittus lunchbox as she loves the combo.But to my luck there was no tomato and I check it only morning,then came the idea of making malai baby corn sabji which I shared in instagram, adding  little peas with it.I was little doubttful whether she would like it as she is always reluctant to try new dishes.To my surprise, the lunchbox returned back empty and I was happy to hear that she loved the subji....So made it again and clicked it to share with you all.You can make many variations with it,please check my notes.

My Notes:

  • You can add baby corn along with the gravy and cook.But I prefer pressure cooking to fasten the process.As an alternate you can even deep fry baby corn and add it to the gravy.
  • Adding fresh cream gives slight sweet taste so adjust spices accordingly.
  • You can replace baby corn with any vegetable of your choice or even paneer.
  • The spice powders are your preference.Adjust to your liking.

  1. Serves 1? Can we easily quadruple this recipe?

  2. Sharmi, very interesting subji, really without tomato - looking so tasty. Feel like have it as a starter too. Your photograph shows the tasty coating of malai masala perfectly. Surely I will try soon. Your Phulka basket is cute.

  3. Your baby corn recipes are so tempting. But whenever iI buy baby corn and cook it, i get a very pungent smell of pesticides which makes it very unpalatable. Do you have this problem? Any suggestions to do away with the smell? I am very hesitant to make anything for my 6 yr old kid because of this.

    1. No I havent had any issues like that..Try buying organic variety then
