Chilli Baby Corn

This indo chinese recipe is a hit with many folks. I usually make chilli baby corn as a side dish when i have a indo chinese menu at home. This recipe is a crisp version and a semi dry dish. It has some moistness, hence i call it semi dry. There is no gravy and the sauce coats the fried baby corn.
