Makkai Mirch Masala (corn And Capsicum Curry)
Every time I go to my friend Sanjana’s home, I feel vegetarian food is more tasty than Non- vegetarian food. Sanjana is from Rajasthan and they cook pure vegetarian food at home. I like the simplicity of their food. It is very simple with basic ingredients and still has lot of flavor.
Unlike food from Northern India, Rajasthani food especially their curries are not overcooked and hence the veggies retain the natural flavor. This Makkai Mirch masala for example takes just 15 to 20 mintues and taste royal. The Makkai is boiled beforehand and the capsicum is cooked in the gravy itself and hence gives you a crunchy bite. It is also the combination, which makes the difference. Sanjana served this curry with Makki ki roti (Cooked with a hint of desi ghee) and Aam ka achaar.
