Corn Bharta

Corn Bharta

Corn Bharta with step-by-step photo and video recipe.

Me and my husband loves bharta and this bhutte ka bharta hits all the right notes.

The sweetness of corn, tanginess of tomatoes, flavours of spices and the smokiness of char makes it so much tasty. It goes well with roti or paratha.

This is one of the unique sabzi that you wouldn’t have much heard of. I myself haven’t tried or heard of it anywhere else. It’s my own creation and we love it.

The idea is to slow cook it on a low flame until all the flavours are well combined making it with full of beautiful flavours.

We make baingan ka bharta often but this is a seasonal sabji when we make only when fresh corn is in season.
