Sweet Corn Spicy Masala | Indian Style Sweet Corn Curry

Sweet corn recipes are not authentic food of India but over the past few years, it has become the favorite of Indians. It has been used in preparing snacks, soups, salads etc. Whenever I reach the market I fetch the sweet corn kernels packet just to as me and my better half are ardent fans of it. I use them in all recipes like pulao preparations, curries, salads etc. This recipe is a spicy masala made with sweet corns using basic Indian spices and ingredients. This curry goes well with Chapati, Roti, Naan varieties. Sweet corns are good source of anti-oxidants, carbohydrates, proteins, fiber, helps in reducing bad cholesterol and yummy too!! Instead of using the same dal or lentil varieties and vegetables, you can try recipes using sweet corn, as it is good for health and also tasty.


  1. Raw sweet corn kernels - 1 cup
  2. Big onions - 1
  3. Ripe Tomatoes - 1 (or) Tomato puree - 3 spoons
  4. Green chillies - 1 or 2
  5. Curry leaves - Few
  6. Coriander leaves - A handful
  7. Red chilli powder - 2 spoons
  8. Coriander powder - 1 spoon
  9. Garam masala powder - 1 spoon
  10. Cumin seeds - 2 spoons
  11. Gram flour/Besan Flour - 2 spoons
  12. Thick Curd - 1 spoon
  13. Kasoori methi/Dry fenugreek leaves - 1/4 spoon 
  14. Sugar - 1/4 spoon (optional)
  15. Salt - As per taste 
  16. Butter/Oil - 1 tablespoon 


  • In a pressure cooker add the sweet corns, salt and 2 cups of water, close the lid and pressure cook for 10 minutes.
  • In another pan add butter/oil, splutter cumin seeds, curry leaves, coriander leaves, fry chopped onions until it turns brownish.

  • Now add garam masala powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder and stir well.
  • Beat curd well and add it to the masala.
  • In a cup add besan flour/gram flour and 1/4 cup of water, mix well. See that no clumps are formed. Add this mixture to the masala
  • Add the cooked sweet corn along with the water and stir well.
  • Add cumin powder and sugar and stir well.
  • Then add crushed kasoori methi and mix well.
  • Cook for 2 minutes and finally add coriander leaves again.
  • Add a spoon of butter.
  • Remove from flame and serve.
TIP 1: Curd should not be sour. If you don't get curd use lemon just before serving. Lemon gives a different flavor.

TIP 2: You can also make this recipe using Baby corns.

TIP 3: To make it more yummier you can grind few of the sweet corn kernels and add them to the masala.

TIP 4: Instead of pressure cooking the corns, you can also steam cook it and add it to the masala. If you pressure cook it do not throw of the water, use it in the masala preparation.
