greeny babycorn on a bed of daliya/couscous


baby corns is an all time favorite with both of us and we like it as crunchy as possible........arvind like this greeny baby corn in a sandwich but for me it is a good accompaniment of my steamed daliya or couscous......it's so simple that it's ready within 15 minutes if you have soaked daliya ( if using)....fine couscous gets cooked without much soaking......

this recipe was lying in my drafts for a long time n now it gets it's well deserved place here......fresh n crunchy........fit for any meal of the day and healthy as i like it to be.............


to prepare couscous....soak 1/4 cup of couscous in 1/2 cup of buttermilk, salt n pepper to taste n let it rest untill you chop the veggies...........microwave in a container with lid for 2 minutes just before arranging the dish.....

to prepare greeny babycorns..........chop a handful of spinach with all the stems roughly,chop green part of a spring onion, slit around 10 baby corns lengthwise, finely chop 5-6 garlic cloves finely and crush 12-15 peppercorns roughly..........

heat a tsp of oil in a pan , tip in the garlic n let it get fried.......tip in the chopped veggies , salt to taste n crushed pepper corns and toss n fry until the spinach looks wilted.........baby corns get half cooked by this time n it's done for me now....you can cook it a bit more if you like...

to arrange.... spread cooked couscous on a plate and tip the cooked veggies on top..........so attractive to look at.......i get hungry seeing it........

i like it with a tall glass of buttermilk.....
