A peppy hara masala that combines coriander with pungent add-ons like ginger, garlic and green chillies, converts the mildly-flavoured baby corn into a true tongue-tickler.

This scrumptious Baby Corn Hara Masala is quite easy to prepare using the microwave oven, and pretty fast too. It takes just minutes to cook the paste as well as the corn.

One thing you need to note here is not to stir the corn-masala mixture when it cooks initially. It must be left undisturbed to get the correct texture. You can mix it later, at the end of the process, after adding lemon juice.

Baby corn transforms into a sumptuous Starters / Snacks that you will love to bite on.

A great Indian twist to an otherwise okay dish. The hara masala really lightens up the taste buds! The seasonings are the hero of this dish for sure.
