Methi Corn Malai

Methi Corn Malai - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Corn and fresh fenugreek cooked in a mild and rich curry. Corn methiwala /Methi corn malai or Methi makai malai is a very popular North Indian style curry. The slightly sweet taste of corn and cashew blend very well with fenugreek in this curry. Though it is made in a quite rich gravy but I have skipped adding cream in it and just added cashew paste and milk but you can add cream if you wish.Boiled fresh corn or frozen or tinned corn can be used to make Methi corn malai.
