Many a times corn is used as topping in various savory delicacy.  

But here I used it in main course and  gave it all-together a yummy and different twist. This corn vegetable is very simple and delicious to make. It can be served during any kind of get-together and parties. 

I gave little sweetness and creaminess in the recipe which get along very well with corn due to the natural sweetness in corn.

I used cashews and magaz (melon seeds) to make the gravy thick and used cream and mawa to give creaminess. 

Mawa adds extra flavor and enhance the taste to great level. Try not to skip mawa, trust me it will boost up the taste.

Instead of buying market made mawa I made instant 2-minute homemade mawa. 

It’s advised to make the mawa before starting the recipe and keep it in the fridge to set.
