A tantalizing combo of tender corn and capsicum cooked in milk and tempered with indian spices, makai capsicum cannot really be called a customary gujarati dish, but the younger generation definitely enjoys this off-beat vegetable preparation as it is low on spices and ghee.

Excellent dish!! BUT let me tell you what I did wrong so no one else does these mistakes! My corn kernels contained a wee bit of moisture, that made the Flour sticky and thus I could not really sauté the corn and capsicum.. Had to run to my microwave to do that bit! But the final outcome was really nice!

Excellent Recipe !One of the most delicious ones out of the plentiful of recipes I have tried from Tarla Dalal's cookbooks.However, I substitute the Maida with whole wheat flour to make the recipe healthier.Also , to add to the protein I add half a slice of Processed Cheese to the milk. A must try for everyone! Is also a hit in Tiffin boxes for kids and grown ups alike !))
