Sweet, Sour and Spicy Curried Corn

My apologies for not being regular in posting recipes. I recently moved cities and had a baby. Being a first time mom, the learning curve has been steep, but I am enjoying it and the baby is doing well so I guess I am doing a good enough job!

As the name suggests, the recipe results in a tangy corn curry and is eaten with chevro, chips/crips, fried sev etc… It is kind of the channa bateta of the busy momma!
