corn-capsicum-masalaI had this corn capsicum masala in a restaurant and loved it a lot. Both Vj and Aj loved it. We all are sweet corn fans and very often make sweet corn chaat for evening snack. At least twice a week. So obviously, this was really delicious and we enjoyed this a lot. It was creamy, tangy as well as slightly sweet. So I thought I could make it as I make the usual Masala and add capsicum and corn to it. It turned out great and Aj loved it a lot with dal and rice. I made it for dinner with roti and it was perfect too. So add this to your side dish for chapati list and impress your family Blushing.

Corn capsicum masala recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Side dish
Prep Time: 10 mins    |  Cook time: 20 mins    Serves: 2


Sweet corn (I used frozen) - 2 cups

Capsicum, cubed (I used 3 colours) - 1 cup heaped

Onion - 2

Tomato, large - 2

Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp

Red chilli powder - 2 tsp

Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp

Turmeric - 1/4 tsp

Kasoori methi - A generous pinch

Cream - 1/4 cup

Salt & oil - As needed

Sugar - 1/4 tsp

To temper

Oil - 2 tblsp

Cardamom - 2

Clove - 1

Cinnamon - 1 small piece


  1. In a pan, add little oil and fry capsicum for 2 minutes in medium flame.1-fry 
  2. In the same kadai, add cubed onion with little oil and fry until it turns golden here and there.2-fry  
  3. Grind it with roughly chopped tomatoes to a smooth puree.3-grind 
  4. In the kadai, add oil and temper with cardamom, clove and cinnamon. Add the ground puree. Cover with lid as it splutters a lot. 
  5. 4-temper
  6. After few minutes, say 2-3 mins, the spluttering will subside, add ginger garlic paste to it and fry for 2 more minutes. Add red chilli, garam masala, turmeric powders along with kasoori methi and salt.5-fry 
  7. Fry until oil separates in medium flame. I microwaved corn with 2 tblsp water for 4 minutes, stirring in between once to cook it. You can cook in you own way.6-cook 
  8. Add the cooked corn to it and fry for 2 more minutes.7-add 
  9. Add 1 cup water and boil for 3 minutes. Put the flame to low and add cream slowly stirring.8-cream 
  10. The gravy should not boil so keep the flame always in low after adding cream. Add the fried capsicum and mix well. Heat for a minute and switch off the flame.9-add


    • I used cooking cream, you can use nestle cream.
    • You can add milk in place of cream too.
    • Adding little butter may enhance the taste.
    • Adding capsicum in the end ensures it stays crisp.

Serve with as accompaniment for mild pulaos or with plain roti.

  19. Tried this sometime back. Comes out very good. Thanks for this recipe!

  20. I tried it. It's an amazing curry,simple delicious, everyone loved it and appreciated it. I did not had the blender so i grated the onion and fried it first until the raw smell was gone. Followed by grated tomato and cooked until oil separated from the masala. Personally i like capsicum a little more cooked so next time i will finely chop the capsicum and fry ituntil it is a little soft. Other than these changes i followed the recipe as it is. Very nice recipe plz keep up the good job. Bless you and and your family :)
