The weather is getting too chilled since few days and we are waiting for snow fall now. Obviously our tastebuds asks for deep fried foods or else for spicy foods. Since my lil one asked for chinese foods for his sunday lunch, i ended up in making a quick sunday special lunch with fried rice and chilly babycorn.Though this kind of cuisine is quite available in roadside hotels in India, its quite a hard task for us to get this kind of dishes here. If we crave for some Indo chinese foods,we dont have any option other than cooking at home.As i told earlier, last weekend i prepared a chicken fried rice, to serve along with this fried rice i quickly prepared this dry yet an excellent side dish with babycorns. Quick to make with simple ingredients, this chilli babycorn will definitely please anyone's tastebuds. Give a try to this dish, am sure you will definitely prepare this dish quite often.
Its been a while i bookmarked this chilli babycorn from Sailu's space,finally i got a chance to prepare this delicious dish last weekend for our lunch. You can either prepare this dish as a dry version or else as a semi gravy version. However mine is a dry version and you can serve it very well as a starter. Though a crispy version of chilli babycorn do exists, i love this version very much as you can enjoy this dish as a starter as well as a side dish with a simple fried rice. If you dont have babycorn, just stick with cauliflower florets. Am running this month's last week's blogging marathon with bookmarked recipes as theme, obviously this post is going to this week's theme.
