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.
