Recipe by Charishma_Ramchanda

This recipe won a prize in the week of June 15-21st'06 in the Thursday magazine's Cook and Win contest. One of my favourite vegetables to order at restaurants is this. Now, thanks to Meenakshi S. Shankar who submitted this to the magazine, I can cook it in my kitchen, save dollars, use the oil of my choice, fresh vegetables, and yet, have a blast! Enjoy :)

This is indeed a winner! Used fresh corn off the cobb, no peas. Fenugreek leaves versus vinegar is a great idea! Delicious!
