Makai Shimla Mirch ki Khatti Meethi Subji (Sweet & Sour Corn n Bell Peppers)

This is a low calorie veggie recipe. I love corn and this experiment turned out really great for me. I've served it as evening snacks and sometimes as a side dish too. It is super fast and super easy to make... a great choice for the weight watchers.


2 tbsp oil
Pam Spray
1 diced onion
2 diced tomatoes
2 diced green bellpeppers
2 diced red bell peppers
2 cups of sweet corn
2/3 chopped cloves of garlic
1/2 inch cube of ginger, chopped
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
a dash of lemon juice
salt to taste


SERVING: Serves 4


1. Put oil in a wok, let it warm up.
2. Add the chopped ginger and garlic to the oil
3. Add the diced onions, let them cook till transparent
4. Add the diced tomatoes, cook till done. Your base is ready.
5. Take a pan and spray it with Pam. Let it heat, add the diced red and green bellpeppers. Char the bellpeppers at high heat. This may blacken the bellpeppers a bit, so move it around in the pan till they seem cooked to your taste.
6. Add the charred bellpeppers to the wok that contains the onion and tomato base.
7. Add the corn kernels. Mix the veggies together and cook for 2-3 minutes.
8. Add the ground black pepper and salt to taste.
9. Add a dash of lemon juice, mix the veggies and remove from fire.
10. Serve hot with rotis or any breads or even rice.

Enjoy !!
