Kadai Baby Corn

Kadai Baby Corn with step-by-step pictures and detailed recipe. Kadai Baby Corn is a flavourful and spicy gravy that is earthy and delicious. Baby Corn is cooked along with onions and simmered in an aromatically spiced onion tomato gravy.

For preparing Kadai Masala at home you will need to dry roast a few of the spices like coriander seeds,  cumin seeds, red chili powder, pepper powder, and cinnamon.

This sabzi tastes absolutely tooth-some and aromatic as we are roasting whole spices and blending them for this recipe. All these spices are roasted together till they are aromatic and release their flavor. Roast them on slow flame till you can see the spices changing their color. Switch off the flame and once they cool down grind into a blender till a fine powder. These dry roasted spice powder mixed into Kadai gravy will taste very good.

The specialty of Kadai Baby Corn is that it is cooked in Kadai, an Indian Wok that is commonly available in most Indian homes. However, you can cook it in a regular non-stick pan as well.  Moreover, the spices used in Kadai Mushroom masala are freshly ground to give amazing flavors and aroma.

Recipe  Notes

  • For the best Kadai Baby Corn sabzi, it is advisable to use freshly ground spices for the gravy.
  • Also, use fresh spices and not too old, else there won’t be much flavor to it and the sabzi will not taste good.
  • If you do not have time to prepare fresh Kadai Masala, then you can use Garam masala, however, the taste will change a bit.
  • Using red dry Kashmiri chilies will give a good color to the gravy and also won’t be too spicy.
  • I do not use fresh cream in any Kadai gravy as it reduces the spiciness of the sabzi.
  • However, you can add other vegetables too in this Kadai Baby Corn.
  • If you want to make this gravy richer, then add cashew nuts to this recipe.
