Baby Corn Stir Fry/Baby Corn Sabzi

These days Prajju has become a die hard fan of baby corns due to its crunchiness. He loves it in any form. Today I prepared Corn Pulav for him for lunch. And there were few left over baby corns and I made these stir fry for dinner. The moment he smelled the baby corns he instantly wanted to have them. He didn't even allow me to click few pics. I had to compromise him for few and only then I was able to click the pictures :-) This is a very easy side dish which pairs up well with rice or rotis. Here comes the recipe!


Baby corn - 7 or 8, cut into bite sizes
Onion - 1
Capsicum - 1/2, cut into small cubes
Tomato sauce - 1 tsp
Soy sauce - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Oil - for tempering
Salt - as per taste
Sesame seeds - 1/2 tsp, for added flavor (optional)

  1. If using sesame seeds dry roast them and set aside. 
  2. Heat oil in a pan, add the cumin seeds. Saute for few seconds and then add the ginger garlic paste. Fry till the raw smell goes off. Then add the onions and saute until they turn transparent.
  3. Then add the capsicum and the baby corns. Add tomato sauce and soy sauce and little bit of salt. Mix well and cook until the raw smell goes off. Turn them every now and then to make sure it doesnt get burnt. At the same time baby corns and the capsicum should retain their crunchiness. So do not over cook.
  4. Once done, turn off the flame and sprinkle the sesame seeds all over and transfer to a serving bowl. Enjoy with any rice or rotis.
