Corn Capsicum Gravy, Sweet Corn Capsicum Masala Recipe

Corn Capsicum Gravy
Corn Capsicum Masala is a great sidedish for phulka /chapathi or even for mild pulaos.We all love sweet corn so anything made with it a winner here so made this corn capsicum combo in the usual onion tomato gravy that I make for most sidedishes and it turned out so delicious.It had a mild sweet taste from both corn and capsicum which we loved and it paired so well with phulkas.

You know?! My sil gifted this bowl 2 yrs back and I so love it :) Thank you Priya for the beautiful brown bowl!! :))

How to make Corn Capsicum Gravy

My Notes:

  • This is medium spicy with the measurement I have given. You can adjust according to your taste buds.
  • Adding cream gives a creamy and rich restaurant flavour.I used homemade fresh cream.
  • The consistency should be flowing and creamy.
  • Toasting capsicum and adding at the final stage gives a nice crunch as in restaurants.
  • I used homemade fresh cream.
