Corn in Tomato Gravy - Makai ki Subzi
Corn in Tomato Gravy - Makai ki Subzi
Its Snowing again. Just had another Snow Storm yesterday, but it was'nt as bad as the last two ones we had this month. It makes me happy to know that Spring is just round the corner. Since kids are home- enjoying their No School days and we parents have been busy keeping them busy. This was my son's request for lunch today. I have'nt made these Parathas for a while and both my kids love corn which explains this combination. This was what we are having for lunch, Would you care to join us ....

  • 1 cup tomato puree
  • 2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 green chilli slit
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • salt to taste
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
Preparation :Heat oil in a pan. Add the bay leaf. Add the pureed onion and saute till you no longer get the raw onion smell. Add the gingen-garlic paste. Saute for about 2 minutes.

Add about 1 cup of water and bring it to a boil. Cook on medium flame for about 6-8 minutes. Makai ki Subzi is ready to serve with Masala Paratha/Besan Paratha. This recipe serves 4.
Masala Paratha/Besan Paratha- Indian Bread
  • 2 cups wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup Besan/Chickpea flour
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • pinch of hing/Asafoetida
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1 cup of water for kneading the dough
  • oil for shallow frying the Parathas
You could need a little more water when kneading the dough but do not add too much water or the dough would be too sticky to roll out the parathas.
Preparation :
Here is the way I made my Ajwain Parathas. You can make this Masala Paratha the same way. This Recipe makes 12 parathas. Enjoy the hot shallow fried Parathas with Makai ki Subzi. In fact these Masala Parathas could be enjoyed just by themselves as well.
