CORN ON THE COB CURRY
One of the joys of life is to see your children move on in their lives and settle into beautiful relationships and start their own families. When my son announced to me about his special someone several years ago and his intention to marry, not only was I thrilled with the news but also the realization that she was the daughter of my best friend. I had seen her grow up right before my eyes, and now she was going to be my daughter-in-law. It was a warm fuzzy feeling that the friends I had known for so many years were now going to be family.
I wanted to share this good news with my friend as soon as possible, assuming that she may not know about this relationship. I called her and told her that I will see her in the evening that day. We (my husband and I) met that evening and gave them the good news. My assumption was right, they had no idea about this relationship and they were also thrilled with the news we gave them. That evening was remarkably good as we all enjoyed each other’s company more than ever before.
I am writing all this because today I am sharing her recipe. Many of her recipes are regulars in my kitchen and when corn was in season, this curry was always on her menu. Whenever I make her recipe I miss her a lot as she now lives in New Zealand which is far from Canada. I miss those days when we were together in Africa, when we used to chit-chat the whole day, enjoyed each other’s company, nice food and drinks. Yesterday when I talked to her she said, “That was the golden period of our life when we were together in Africa”.
Coming to the recipe, if you like corn, you will love this awesome recipe. To enjoy this corn on the cob curry, get ready to have messy fingers; that is the only way to enjoy this, you cannot eat this with a fork and knife!

I love this corn curry and have made it so many times during my visit to Montreal as it does taste different from the white corn we use in Kenya. However, I've not made it with yogurt. I use only coconut milk and sometimes fresh tomato puree. Will try adding yogurt next time.ReplyDelete
Hi Mayuri, I am glad you liked the corn here in Canada, ya they are different and sweet. You can try adding yoghurt next time.Delete
I have got to try this Sadhna. We always eat our corn, or mealies, with loads of butter and some marmite. The curry, coconut mix really appeals to me. I just showed your recipe to my hubby and he's really keen to make it this weekend. I can't wait!!!ReplyDelete
Hi Michelle, I am glad you liked my recipe and your hubby is going to try. Even me I enjoyed mealies that side because they ere very tasty. I miss that taste here, the one we get here are sweeter. Thanks for your comment dear.Delete
