Vegan & Gluten Free Dubki Wale Corn

Dubki Wale Corn is tender corns,  cut into big pieces and  cooked a thin onion tomato gravy.  This brought fond memories of my childhood days, eating corn on cob on street carts.  If you have eaten corn on cob and sucked the corn till the end, then you will enjoy this gravy it's also Vegan, Gluten free.
4 Corn Cobs - cut into two or three pieces
½ Teaspoon Turmeric powder
 Teaspoon Sea Salt or to taste 
For the Gravy
4 Medium  Onions-   grind to a smooth paste
4 Medium Tomatoes -  chop and blend to a paste
1½ Tablespoons Ginger Garlic paste
1 Teaspoon Cumin seeds

2 Teaspoons Kashmiri Red Chilly powder
1 Teaspoon Level Garam masala powder

8 Black Peppercorns
1 Bay leaf
2" Cinnamon stick
2 Green Cardamons
2 Tablespoons Oil
Tablespoons Ghee
3 Tablespoon Fresh Cream

Let's boil the corn 
Clean the corn well, remove all the hair. Wash and cut into big pieces .

Boil the corn pieces in a pressure cooker, with salt, turmeric and enough water.  Take  2 -3 whistles on high flame. Switch off the flame andlet the cooker cool on its own.

Once cooled,  separate the corn and water in a bowl.

For the Gravy

Heat oil  and ghee in the same p, add  cumin seeds  when the crackle, add whole spices, saute for a minute.  Take this pan off the flame and then add in the in onion paste and mix well then place  the pan back on the flame.  Fry it on medium high flame, stirring constantly, till it will turns golden and start leaving the sides. Now add ginger garlic paste, saute for  2 minutes. 
Add tomato paste, fry till the oil start to leave the sides now add powdered spices, turmeric, red chilly and coriander powder add 1/3 cup water from the boiled corn and the fresh cream keep stirring till all the water evaporates and oil surfaces.  Then add rest of  the water or more according to gravy you want  and cover and cook till  oil  surfaces . The gravy is  done, now taste for salt, add if necessary , add the corn pieces and mix well  so that corn is coated with the gravy . Cover and on high flame take 2 -3  whistles.  When the cooker cools  open and  check for  the gravy since this will tastes best when the gravy is quite thin and runny. 
Transfer this  to a serving bowl.
 Garnish with chopped coriander and mint leaves.
Enjoy  with  rotis, paratha, or  with bread or  steamed rice. This curry is a treat for sweet corn lovers.

My Notes

The gravy should be a little spicy and thin, it's like soaking bread pieces and  sucking  the juices.   as the fun is in breaking and soaking your bread in it.
As I, mentioned above  the fun way to enjoy this to the very end is when the kernels are all eaten, then to keep dipping the cob in the gravy and suck the juices out as in Mumbai we say "chus - chuske  khana"  i.e. till its dry...  This is the ultimate experience and  highlight of the whole corn in gravy.  Try this and you will love it.
