Mughlai Corn Curry

This rich, creamy, sweet and spicy mughlai curry dish. At first, it is spicy from all the masalas, and when you work through your way to sweet corn, it is actually sweet. It is little different from the other curries. One can have this with rice, naans, paratha, but my personal favorite is garlic naan. Keep in mind, this dish is high in calories, so keep those workout outfits handy, hehe.


  • 3 cups Sweet Yellow Corn,
  • 1 Big Red Onion, grated
  • 4-5 Garlic Cloves, grated
  • 1/2 tsp Ginger, grated
  • 1-1/2 cups Tomato Puree
  • 1 Potato, cubed
  • 1 cup Khoya, grated
  • 2 Green Chillies, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Dhania-Jeera Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
  • 1 tsp Kichen-King Masala
  • 1 tsp Red Chilli Powder
  • 2 Green Cardamom
  • 1 Bay Leaf
  • 1 tsp Shaahi Jeera
  • 1 tsp Amchur
  • 1/2 tsp Kasuri Methi
  • 1 cup Vegetable stock
  • 1/4 cup Heavy Cream
