Baby Corn Masala

Baby corn is one such thing that can gel well with any cuisine, be it Indian, Chinese or anything from West. Baby corn has host of benefits, like it is low in calories, and has less carb when compared with normal corn. Baby corn has large fibre contents, which is good for lowering risk of heart diseases and type 2 diabetes. A 1/2-cup serving offers 4 percent of the daily value for vitamin A and iron, and 2 percent of the daily value for vitamin C. Sharing this Baby Corn Masala, a creamy gravy based recipe, which I would say is derived from my experiment with North Indian Cuisine.
