Sweet Corn And Potatoes With Mustard Seeds And Mint

Today, I’m posting a recipe for Sweet Corn and Potatoes with Mustard seeds and Mint. It’s best to use fresh summer corn for this dish. But, if you can’t get hold of the fresh corns, then just substitute with good quality frozen summer corn, which is what I used here incidentally. This sweet corn dish has sweet, hot, and sour flavors. It’s great with any Indian meal.

Sweet Corn And Potatoes With Mustard Seeds And Mint-Bhutta aur aloo ki mazedar tarkari


3 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
½ tsp Mustard Seeds
¼ tsp Cumin Seeds
1 Clove Garlic, peeled and finely chopped
150 g (5 oz) Potatoes, boiled, peeled and cut into 5mm (1/4 inch) dice

Put the oil in a large, preferably non-stick, frying pan and set over medium-high heat. When hot, put the mustard seeds and cumin seeds. As soon as the mustard seeds begin to pop – this takes just a few seconds – put in the garlic and potatoes. Stir and fry until the potatoes are lightly browned.

Then mix in the tomatoes, fresh coriander, mint and chili. Stir and fry for 1-2 minutes. Add in the sweet corn and stir. Pour in the coconut milk, sea salt, cayenne, and lemon juice. Stir to mix and bring to a simmer. Cover, turn the heat to low and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until the sweet corn is cooked.

Uncover; add some black pepper and the ground roasted cumin seeds. Stir to mix, and taste for the balance of seasonings.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
