Corn on the Cob & Tomato Curry

भुट्टे और टमाटर का झोल

BHUTTE Tamatar ka Jhol 🌽🌽🍅- Sweet Corn in Spiced Tomato Curry is quite a dish. WARNING! – The corn soaks up the juicy tomato curry so each time you gnaw into the corn, the tangy and round flavours activate your taste buds causing massive amounts of drooling 😋! – And remember to put your old T-shirt on while eating it, you’ll thank me later! 🙃

It’s a simple vegetarian curry (not to be underestimated!!) made from a basic Indian pantry, so it works perfectly as a lockdown recipe.
