A good one dish meal which includes green leafy vegetable too. Instead of fresh curds, I served it with Dahiwali Phudina Chutney which is again a Tarla Dalal Chutney. Tx mam.

This is a dish with a delicate flavour that pleases the taste buds with gentle sweetness. The Corn and Methi partner very well to give this simple dish a delicious aroma and taste. This recipe became an instant hit with my family and friends. I love it because it's so ridiculously easy to stir up and serve. I tried powdering the pepper and sprinkling it on top of the dish and it worked equally well. I gave this a perfect 5/5 because my friends and family have made repeated demands for this dish.
