Corn Korma

Although the name korma suggests that this is rich, and indeed this Corn Korma does have a very luscious flavour and texture, the fact is that this delicacy is easier to prepare than the traditional korma and requires much less ingredients.

While grated corn forms the base of this dish, it is aided in volume by a white sauce like mixture, and flavoured with a simple masala of coconut and pepper.

These combine so beautifully, to create a really rich and interesting accompaniment for your favourite Rotis or Parathas . Remember to sauté the corn well to get an inviting aroma.
