I enjoyed this unique curry. I've never had corn in Indian food before, but the ingredient compliments the spices very well. I served this as a side with Ethiopian chicken curry, and all in all it was a great meal. The flavor of the corn curry really improves after a day in the fridge, so next time I'd probably make this a day in advance. [Made & Reviewed for PAC Fall 2013]
