Chilli Garlic Baby Corn

Chilli Garlic Baby Corn

Chilli Garlic Baby Corn is a garlicky baby corn starter loved by both adults and children. Chilli babycorn is a popular Indo-Chinese dish served by restaurants and the street food vendors.

I have used dry red chillies as I love the smoky flavor imparted by the dry red chillies. I have made this dish for starter hence it is dry but this dish can be made with gravy as well.
