Baby Corn Stir Fry

Simple and easy to make baby corn stir fry is indeed a borrow from China to India and became one unique part of our Indo Chinese recipes. Don't you think so? Baby Corn is my all time favorite. I still remember every week asking my dad to take us to a hotel by name Raj Residency and force him to order Babycorn masala with Butter Naan.. Good old days.. I was in 5th class then. Babycorn masala was my favorite and bothered my mom to the core just to make Baby corn masala. But my mom answered that she doesn't know how to. Time flew.. you have many more tag lines added to Baby corn.. but those memories last long forever.. I frequently visit Vizag and went to that place were Raj residency was situated... bad luck... its no longer there.... I have to cherish the memories of that yummy babycorn masala close to me and find out something to recreate the taste.  Coming back from embraced memories. I am presenting simple and delicate recipe.. Babycorn Stir Fry. My recipe is more Indi indi recipe where you will find traces of Chinese but more inclined towards Desi, If i can call so. Perfectly matches with plain rice and also with Jeera rice or Ghee rice or Butter rice.

You will need:
Baby corns- 9-10
Capsicum- 1 chopped
Onion-1 chopped
Carrots- 2 small chopped
Salt- as per taste
Soya sauce- 1/2 tsp
Sweet Chilli Sauce- 2 tsps (optional)
Garam masala - 1 tsp
Chilli Powder- 2 tsps
Turmeric powder- Pinch
Oil- 2 tbsps
Jeera- 1/2 tsp

Procedure:
Cut each baby corn into 2 or 3 pieces based on its length. Put them in a bowl of water and throw a pinch of salt and turmeric powder and bring them to a boil. Off the flame and remove them from water and put them on a plate.  Heat oil in a frying pan, add jeera or cumin seeds until they splutter and then add chopped onions and fry until translucent. Add capsicum and carrots and cook for 2-3 mins.  Add the boiled baby corn pieces and combine all the veggies by adding salt and the sauces. Throw in the spice powders and then mix the ingredients. Cover it with a lid so that the veggies absorb the masalas and sauces. After 2-3 mins, remove the lid and then fry the entire mixture until slight crisp  for about 4-5 mins. Ensure that you keep stirring this mixture occasionally to prevent scorching. That's it.. You are done and now pair it up with plain rice... Eureka.... You have a satisfying meal.
