Pea and Sweetcorn curry

Autumns and all through the winters, markets will be flooded with vegetables and fruits !! For me, this is a happy season……..basking in the sun, steaming soups, crunchy breads, varieties of sautees and pan – toasted vegetables, meat roasts, grilled fish, warm desserts !! ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

Fresh sweet corns and peas have arrived in the markets !!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Kicking off the season of Vegetable Bounty with these tender sweet corns and and peas in a moderately spicy tomato gravy. ๐Ÿ™‚

All three of us love corn, especially Praveen ๐Ÿ™‚ It is an important source of Goitrogen food for him.
