Sweet corn is much loved at home in almost all forms.  I like the specially roasted corn on the charcoal sprinkled with chili powder, salt and then brushed with lemon juice is excellent  in its flavor.  I normally pick it up when ever i find it on the cart on the road side at Mani-pal.  I have already put up a few dishes like the kosambari, corn vada, pulav etc..,  Today i would like to put up sweet corn curry with gravy which is a good combo with rice as well as chapati or even roti.  Here is my version of the recipe….

1. Sweet corn kernels – 1 and 1/2 Cup

2. Chopped Capsicum – 1 Cup

3. Chopped Onion – 1 Cup
