Achari Makai Tamatar Subji (Corn and Tomato Vegetable in pickling spices)

This Bhaji was a result of a random kitchen experiment that was very successful, so it made it to the blog :) That particular day, we had returned from a trip and had nothing on hand but frozen corn and some leftover tomatoes. I decided to add flavor to the bhaji by adding pickling spices and presto, this recipe was born. It tasted absolutely yummy and was certified blog worthy by my family [read guinea pigs :) - sorry family]. Well here is the recipe:

Corn - frozen or fresh ( 1 cup), Tomatoes - 2 medium chopped, Onion - 1 medium chopped, Ginger/garlic - 1 tbsp crushed (1/4th inch ginger and 4-5 cloves of garlic), Oil - 4-5 tsp, Methi/fenugreek seeds - 1/4th tsp, Fennel seeds - 1 tsp, cumin seeds - 1 tsp, asofoetida - 1/4th tsp, turmeric powder - 1 tsp, red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp, apple cider vinegar - 1 tbsp, sugar - 1 tsp, salt - as per taste, garam masala - 1/2 tsp, cilantro chopped - to garnish.

Method: Boil the frozen corn for 5-8 mins till tender, (fresh corn will require less cooking time), take oil in a pan add methi seeds, fennel seeds, cumin seeds, and chopped onion. Fry till onion is golden brown. Add chopped tomatoes and saute till cooked, then add turmeric powder and red chilli powder, sugar and apple cider vinegar. Saute for 1 min and add boiled corm, Add garam masala and salt to taste. Cover and cook for 3-4 mins on medium heat. Add cilantro at the end. Yummy Achari Makai Tamatar Sabji is ready. Enjoy with Chapati or as a side dish with rice.

Till my next post, take care everyone!
