Baby Corn Red Bell pepper Diye Torkari/Sabzi

I have posted a baby Corn Chorchori type of recipe last, you may like to see then Click Here

This is another way we like to prepare Baby corn with Red bell peppers. Tanginess of tomatoes and sweetness of red bell peppers add a whole lot of flavor to this stir/fry or Torkari in Bengali. I often like to make this stir/fry to be a little more like a Rasa type of preparation. In Hindi rasa means “juice” but in culinary world -Rasaa is a Gravy with or of the curry, like the Aloo Matar rasa sabzi. In Northern Indian Cuisine especially the UP cuisine Aloo Matar Rasa sabzi is very popular eaten with Puris in as breakfast dishes.

Again I was not so sure of calling this stir/fry a rasa sabzi as traditionally baby corn and red bell peppers are not part of UP cuisine, so here to be on safe side I called this usual stir/fry as sabzi .Howver consider this to be a rasa type of preparation.

Baby corn Red Bell pepper torkari/sabzi



10 baby corn cut into half

1 red bell pepper
1 Tomato Chopped

2 tsp of paprika/red pepper powder

1 tsp of turmeric powder

2 tsp of coriander powder

1 tsp of panch phoron/Cumin seeds

Salt as per taste

2-3 tbs of cooking oil

Coriander leaves for garnishing


Heat up a saucepan, add oil, and temper it with panch phoron or cumin seeds.

Add all the chopped vegetables like –baby corn, red bell pepper beans and potatoes.

Fry it for 2-3 mints.

Add the seasonings-red pepper powder, turmeric powder, coriander and salt.Paprika if used adds a nice red colour to the recipe.

Mix in well and keep stirring for 2-3 mints more.

And then add in about ¼ cup of water.

Cover and cook the torkari/ rasa sabzi for about 8-10 mints at med-low or till potatoes turn soft and mash able. Serve garnished with coriander.
