How to Make Corn Curry - Makayee Noo Curry


  1. For the green paste, combine all of the ingredients in a small food processor and process to a paste. Set aside.
  2. Combine the milk and half-and-half in a 2-cup measure or small bowl.
  3. Combine the oil, cumin, and mustard seeds, if using, in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cover if using mustard seeds (they pop and splatter) and cook until the cumin turns golden brown or you hear the mustard seeds crackle, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Add the chiles, tumeric, and curry leaves and asafetida, if using, and stir. (Stand back if using curry leaves; they spit when they hit the oil). Immediately add the green paste and turn the heat down to low. Then cook, stirring 1 minute.
  5. Add the flour and cook, stirring, 1 more minute, scraping the bottom of the pan to keep the flour from sticking. Gradually add the milk mixture, about 1 tablespoon at a time at first, to make a smooth paste. Start to add the milk more quickly, adding the final cup all at once. Stir in the salt and the corn, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until the corn is tender, about 4 minutes. Taste for salt and serve hot.
