Dondakaya and Baby Corn Vepudu

Tindora And Baby Corn Stir Fry

Nowadays baby corn has become one of the popular vegetables in Indian culinary cuisine. In restaurants, baby corn fritters are favorites as starters. I too wanted to try cooking these. So I tried cooking them along with dondakaya or ivy gourd. The crunchy baby corn slices with sesame powder tasted amazing :)

What you need:

Tindora-15 in number
Baby corn-6 in number
Sesame seeds-2 tablespoons
Cumin seeds-1/2 tablespoon
Garlic cloves-4
Coriander powder-1 tablespoon
Chilly powder-1 teaspoon
Turmeric powder-a pinch
Salt-to taste
Oil-3 tablespoons

  1. Wash tindora and baby corn and slice them into discs. Heat the oil in a wok or pan and add tindora slices.
  2. After 2-3 minutes, add the baby corn slices. Add turmeric powder and cover it with the lid. Allow them to cook on a low flame for 7-8 minutes. Stir in intervals.
  3. Take sesame seeds, cumin seeds, garlic cloves, chilly powder, coriander powder and salt in a mixer jar. 
  4. Grind them into a powder and add it to the vegetables in the pan.
  5. Mix them well and fry them for 3-4 minutes on a low flame. Turn off the stove and serve it with steamed rice and rasam.
Note:  We can also add baby corn in mixed vegetable rice and salads.
