Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time20 mins
Course: Side Dish
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 2


  • 10 Baby corn
  • 1 Onion
  • 3 flakes Garlic
  • ¾ tsp Red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp Black pepper powder
  • 1 tsp Tomato ketchup or sauce
  • Salt - As needed

To temper

  • 2 tsp Oil
  • ½ tsp Mustard
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 1 sprig Curry leaves


  • Clean and cut baby corn into thin rounds. You can cut as long thin strips too, but I always cut into thin circles.
  • Pressure cook in a small pressure cooker it with little water and salt for a whistle. Quick release the steam.
  • In a pan, heat oil and temper with the items given under ‘To temper’ table, followed by crushed garlic. You can use your garlic press or finely chop too.
  • Fry onion till transparent. Add cooked baby corn, salt, ketchup, chilli powder, pepper powder.
  • Mix and stir in medium flame for 3 minutes. Drizzle little oil if needed.


  • Adding half chilli powder and half pepper powder adds spiciness and flavor to the stir fry. So I recommend using chilli  powder too for best results.
  • Skip sauce, add  lemon juice towards end to balance the spice.
  • You can skip onion in the recipe.
