Corn Methi Punjabi Gravy

Posted by Veena Karanth at 08:17:00
Corn Methi is a unique Punjabi Gravy which I borrowed it from my friend who is staying in Punjab. Its a quick and easy dish to prepare. As methi is added to this gravy, it enhances the taste and also your health since it is rich in calcium source. Milk is another source of calcium which is also used in this dish. corn - being another source of calcium, this dish gives you adequate calcium quantity. So, on consuming this dish, your calcium requirements will be taken care of.

Why I personally like this dish is because unlike in other gravies, you need not spend your time in preparing onion paste, tomato paste and so on.

Kitchen Masti Points

  1. In this gravy, the cloves and cinnamon should not be added first during the time while frying onions. It should only be added in the final stage because this flavor should not overcome the methi's flavor.
  2. Garam Masala should be added in minimum quantities so that it should not dominate the other flavors.
    In punjabi gravies, butter should be compulsorily added. I have added only 1 tsp of butter. However, if you are not that health conscious you can add another 2 - 3 tbsp of butter.
  3. While preparing Cashew Nut paste immerse cashew in water half an hour before grinding and as far as possible try to grind it with milk since it will give you a rich taste

Note : If you like the tangy taste, you can add 2 tsp of curds also, but I would recommend not to use it.
