Baby Corn Stir Fry

My kids like corn but somehow they do not enjoy baby corn.
   It is a perpetual quest to make baby corn in the form they will enjoy. One of my recent endeavors has been Baby Corn Stir Fry.

This was for the first time that I had tried making snacks for evening but I was saving it up for the last day of BM.

The girls were not aware of the presence of this new member in the fridge so they had had their snack. But I still heated the container in the microwave and as the younger one was stepping out to play came back in reverse gear to check what was cooking.

Needless to say I was really pleased by the compliment paid.

200 grams baby corn
1 tblsp besan
10 flakes garlic
1’piece of ginger
4 red chillies
¼ cup of warm water
2 tblsp oil
2 onions
1 cup spring onion greens, chopped
1 capsicum, chopped fine
Salt to taste
Coriander for garnishing

1. Soak the red chilies in warm water for 10 minutes.
2. Wash and chop the baby corn to bite sized pieces.
3. Apply a little salt and besan and keep aside for 5 to 10 minutes.
4. Grind the chilies, garlic, ginger and onion to a fine paste use the soaked water as required.
5. In a microwave dish add the 1 tblsp oil and the baby corn. Stir and microwave for 2 minutes or till the corn appears par cooked. Remove the baby corn and keep aside.
6. In the same dish add the ground paste mix with the remaining oil and microwave for 2 minutes or till the raw smell goes away.
7. Add the baby corn, mix, check the seasoning and microwave for 1 more minute.
8. Add the spring onion and capsicum mix well. You can cook it for 1 minute if you so desire. I did not.
9. Serve garnished with coriander.

I must admit I'm not a big baby corn lover but I like it added to curries and upma. You have made a very healthy snack in the microwave and if kids have loved it you have won the battle.
