Corn Capsicum Masala Curry is a creamy, spicy and delicious main course recipe. This is one simple and easy to make vegetarian gravy-based recipe. Serve this curry with roti or rice. We call this 4C at home, wondering why? Then scroll down to read the post.
Planning a menu three times a day is a tedious job and boring job too when you have limited supplies. I have said this before too, I love cooking, but I am awfully bad at meal planning. If someone says what they love to eat or craving to eat or want they want to eat, I will make it in no time. But when it comes to plan and cook, half of my time goes in thinking, scratching my head and playing peek a boo with the ingredients in the fridge and pantry.
Allhumdulliah, no complaints. As we are totally dependent on limited online grocery and vegetable shopping, finding a pack of fresh sweet corn is a bliss! I ordered these golden beauties to make sandwiches and samosas. But I ended up making this creamy and spicy sweet corn capsicum masala gravy. We call this gravy 4C as this curry is creamy and loaded with corn and capsicum.
Corn Capsicum Masala Curry
In this recipe, roasted sweet corn kernels and diced capsicum are cooked in creamy and spicy onion-tomato gravy. I have used fresh sweet corn kernels. You can use frozen sweet corn kernels too. Just remember to thaw them before using. I roasted sweet corn kernels before adding them to the curry. Do not use dry corn kernels, as they start to pop upon roasting and turn into popcorn.

How to roast sweet corn kernels?
Heat pan or cast-iron skillet and add sweet corn kernels and toss lightly until little brown spots start to appear on the kernels. Do not stir as this may break them down.
Otherwise, you can gently roast corn on cob and remove the kernels upon roasting. I prefer roasting the kernels rather than roasting corn on cob.
Can I use milk instead of cream?
Yes, you can use milk instead of cream. For low-fat version, I use milk in most of the vegetarian curries. You can easily substitute cream with milk in this recipe.
Can I make this Corn Capsicum Masala Curry Vegan?
Yes, instead of cream or milk, use ½ cup coconut milk. This will give flavor, taste and creamy texture to the curry.
