Baby Corn Masala is a great sidedish for rotis and mild pulaos.Baby Corn is a crunchy and versatile vegetable that gets easily blended with any masala / gravy.Mittu loves baby corn and she usually likes baby corn fingers / baby corn fry...I wanted to try baby corn gravy for her so made a creamy version adapted from mutter paneer recipe as she loves it........I know it would win hands down while the gravy was boiling itself as the lil one came running to me asking "amma enathu cooking supera vasanai varuthu" :) And she loved the gravy that she was licking the plate and now I have started making this often.
