Creamy Baby Corn Masala Baby corn masala is a delicious gravy based dish that is perfect to serve with naan, roti or simple pulao.

For the final day of this week’s BM under ‘regional side dishes’, I have a delicious gravy based, baby corn masala. To me (and my kids agree), the gravy is the highlight of this dish. Sub baby corn with any of your favorite veggie or protein and you have a yummy side dish perfect to serve with both Roti or rice. It’s rich and creamy – special enough to make for parties too.

We are currently getting the house ready for the move end of this month. Kitchen is the hardest part because I have so much stuff – random things end up in my shopping cart at the grocery store. I actually stopped buying ‘new’ pantry ingredients about 3 months ago and I’ve been sticking to the basics/ essentials. But I still have a ton to go through. So I made a list of ingredients to use up before the move.Creamy Baby Corn MasalaI had couple of cans of baby corn that needed to be used up and hence this recipe was born. The recipe is pretty straight forward – onion, tomato gravy with almond/ cashew paste and some heavy cream to make it rich.

My daughter doesn’t like ‘onions’ – I’m not sure where this girl came from – we LOVE onions in all forms in our family. So I have grind them to a paste, to make her eat the dish. You can choose to keep the gravy chunky by not grinding the base. This will help in making the dish faster and still very tasty.

This is a very basic gravy recipe that will go well with any veggie (cauliflower, potato, mixed veggie) or protein (paneer, tofu, chickpeas etc). Serve this baby corn masala with naan, paratha, Roti or simple pulao/ pilaf. Few more recipes with Baby Corn from the blog:

  1. Creamy , rich and exotic ! The creamy baby corn looks yum and would make a perfect delicious meal .
    Wish you luck with your packing , ask me the kitchen is the hardest part of the move .

  2. Good luck with the move. I agree that the kitchen is the hardest to pack and unpack but has to be the first one too. The gravy would be very yummy and rich for sure.

  3. Pavani, you don’t have to feel different, my kids are the same. They don’t like onions and tomatoes and this and that. Basically, they want pureed creamy side dishes. So I am not surprised. Good luck with the move, I somehow thought you have already moved and in the process of settling. The dish looks so good and I am sure kids said right..:)
