Happy Independence Day - Celebrate with Corn On The Cob Masala

Here's wishing all my dear Indian readers a Very Happy Independence Day!

Here's to our Independence and to the sacrifices of our brave soldiers. I salute you and Thank You for your countless sacrifices so that we can live in a free country!










Lets celebrate this joyous occasion with some Corn On The Cob Masala!

This colorful dish incorporates the beautiful colors of our flag!
.

3 corn/cobs boiled in salted water

1 onion finely chopped

1 tomato finely chopped

1 tsp ginger/garlic paste

red chili powder as per taste

1/2 tsp turmeric powder

salt as per taste

1 tbsp coriander powder

1/4 tsp garam masala

1 tbsp roasted chana dal/gram dal powder

1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves

1 cup water

1.5 tbsp oil, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida powder

.

Heat oil.

Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafoetida powder.

Add onion and fry well till it gets brownish.

Add ginger/garlic paste & fry a few seconds.

Add all the masala powders and tomato, cook till oil separates.

Add water and bring to a boil.

Add boiled corn-on-the-cob sliced into medium size pieces.

Cover and cook 5 minutes for the flavors to blend in.

Reduce heat and add roasted chana dal powder, mix well and switch off flame.

Cover and let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Final dish should have thick gravy, increase the chana dal powder if you find it is watery. Garnish with coriander leaves.
