Spicy Corn Subzi

An interesting preparation of fresh sweet corn, cut and cooked with the cob, later added to an onion and tomato flavoured gravy. The pounded peanut added to the gravy is another highlight of this recipe—the flavour is indeed unique, as you will realise as soon as you take the first spoonful of spicy corn!
