Babycorn Chilli Fry

on December 25, 2014

I was craving for some chinese food last night, But didn’t want it to be non veg as I had too much this week. Nope not paneer again, I need to watch my weight 😛 So the best thing was to pick some beautiful babycorn from the supermarket, and make something really quick outta it. I cant waste more time in kitchen after I come back from office 😦 It gets too tiring. Well, all working women would agree with me on this. Isn’t it ?

This one’s a quick and easy recipe, and super delicious too. Well to be frank am not really a babycorn fan, But after eating this, I have become one 😛 Best part was, My hubby loved it so much, and he says he wants to have it again sometime soon 🙂 Well that’s what matters the most to me 🙂

Here goes the recipe, I adapted it from Veg Recipes of India and altered slightly to my taste, Hope you guys enjoy it
