Baby corn masalaBaby corn masala...It is close to imposible I blog about this masala with out any superlative terms.This calls for very less number of ingredients,very simple to make,takes very less time yet outstanding in taste and flavor.Yes I am not exaggerating a bit here.This baby corn masala I made to serve with whole wheat kulcha was the best in all ways.My husband and sister who tasted this were raving for quiet a long time.No less than a rich gravy served in resturants,only better :). I had purchased a bunch of very fresh baby corns last week, foreseeing some manchurian or pakoda,but when I made this kulcha I did not have any other suitable vegetables for gravy so I made this.It is sheer luck that I got to try this,and eating this was sheer bliss.Here you go with the recipe that you should not miss,please try n I bet you will love this :)
